Lana Del Rey – “Young & Beautiful”

Tom Breihan/StereoGum

Baz Luhrmann’s godawful-looking Great Gatsby adaptation is in theaters now, and you had to know that Lana Del Rey would be the first of the artists on its star-studded soundtrack album to make a video for her contribution. Del Rey’s video for the slow-swelling “Young & Beautiful” is a gorgeously photographed thing, with LDR dressed up in striking Jazz Age iconography and a shadowy orchestra supplying the atmosphere. It doesn’t exactly fit with the movie that it ties in with, but the whole thing is shot like an Italian horror movie from the ’70s, and that’s a good thing. Chris Sweeney directs, and you can watch it below.
