Lana Del Rey, the new glamorously bummed and vaguely sleazy L.A. orch-pop alter-ego of singer-songwriter Lizzy Grant, has already worked up a ton of buzz off of exactly one song: the pretty great “Video Games.” And now we’ve got another, the equally great “Video Games” B-side “Blue Jeans,” which already has its own video. Like “Video Games,” “Blue Jeans” is an exquisitely languid, fundamentally insincere love song that seems like the sort of thing Fiona Apple might be making if she were coming up today. If Del Rey has more songs like this on the way, she’s going places. Listen and watch below.
“Video Games” b/w “Blue Jeans” is out 10/16 digitally and 10/17 on vinyl on Stranger.
