Lana Del Rey – “Ride (UNKLE Remix)”

"Ride," Lana Del Rey's stately new Rick Rubin-produced ballad, is the best song we've heard from LDR in quite some time. And now UNKLE, James Lavelle's surviving trip-hop project, has turned it into an eight-minute downtempo ripple, which you can hear below. More »

Lana Del Rey – “Bel Air” Video

Lana Del Rey has a new video for "Bel Air," one of the new bonus songs from Born To Die: Paradise Edition. It would've been great if the video chronicled her passionate but doomed romance with Uncle Phil, but that is not the case. Instead, it's her staring sexily through plumes of various-colored smoke. The… More »

In an especially on-the-nose moment of Lynch-inspired marketing, Lana Del Rey covered Bernie Wayne and Lee Morris's American standard "Blue Velvet" for an H&M ad campaign recently.

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

I spent a pretty good chunk of the week in transit to or from New York, or doing New York things while I was in New York, so I didn't see a lot of this weeks' videos before the massive video-watching binge I went on this morning. And I have to say: Lots of good… More »

Lana Del Rey – “Ride”

In the first months of the year, the biggest story in music might've been Born To Die, Lana Del Rey's spectacular mess of a debut album, which mangled the mysterious drugged-out grace of her excellent early singles and completed her transformation into self-styled stereotype punchline. But the album does have its fans, and they'll… More »

Boy George Covers Lana Del Rey

Boy George and Lana Del Rey make an interesting pairing: Both obsessed with artifice and self-invention, both carrying big makeup bags, both weirdly iconic in their own ways. And now Boy George has covered (of course) "Video Games." His version soundtracks a lovely, romantic video about two punks in love at an apparently abandoned British… More »

Lana Del Rey – “Summertime Sadness” Video (Feat. Jaime King)

Lana Del Rey's new video for the luxuriantly depressive Born To Die might actually be the most Lana Del Rey thing that ever happened.
