Shades Of Cool

Shades Of Cool” is the most Bond-sounding single off Lana Del Rey’s Ultraviolence, but the video is more fairy tale than action movie. It’s steeped in the mirage-like American iconography that has colored Del Rey’s music in since “Video Games,” depicting a romantic fling with an older man. There are also some stylized images involving birds that could be described as “adult Disney.” Watch it below.

Ultraviolence is out now on Interscope. Read our Premature Evaluation.

  1. So is the older gentleman supposed to be a homage to Lou Reed?
