Young & Beautiful – Lana Del Rey Video
by Vanessa Palmer - (Contact) - May 10, 2013
Interscope records released Lana’s video for the Gatsby film (also released today) ballad “Young & Beautiful”, a simplistically elegant composition of shots of Lana and the sprawling orchestra that carries her somber sentiment. Of course the emotion-centered close-ups of Lana’s yearning face are apparent, but the usual amount of attention on the songstress is lessened here; the visual appears to be less of a Lana advertisement and more of a respectful vision of the track’s meaning. Certain sequences echo 1940′s Fantasia, as we see the back of the enthusiastic conductor in waving motion. View below, and go catch the 4th adaptation of the novel in theaters tonight. If it doesn’t live up to all the hype, at least we have a killer soundtrack to cherish.
