As promised, Lana Del Rey has just shared the Father John Misty-starring video for her Honeymoon track “Freak.” The saga begins with the two musicians hiking out to the wilderness to drop acid and literally drink the Kool-Aid, and the rest is an impressionistic haze of sensuality. Fittingly, things delve into actual impressionism in the second half of the 11-minute clip, as Lana’s song ends and Claude Debussy’s “Clair de Lune” comes on to soundtrack the women from the “Music To Watch Boys To” video cavorting around underwater. Watch below.
UPDATE: At the screening of the video in Los Angeles last night, Father John Misty said that the acid-themed video was partially inspired by a time he tripped at a Taylor Swift concert. Watch video of that revelation below.
