Watch Lana Del Rey’s Futuristic, Gloomy ‘White Mustang’ Video
Singer’s relationship with musician fizzles out in clip for ‘Lust for Life’ single
Lana Del ReyÂ ponders a precarious romance in her “White Mustang” video, set in a futuristic L.A. The clip opens by zooming in on the singer’s CGI mansion, where she gazes longingly at her distant, preoccupied musician boyfriend (Icelandic actor EÃ°varÃ° Egilsson). The piece climaxes with a blank-faced Del Rey driving around in the titular vehicle, soundtracked by a mariachi trumpet solo.
The singer details this ill-fated relationship in the lyrics. “Slippin’ on my dress in soft filters/ Everybody said you’re a killer,” she croons over piano and electronics. “But I couldn’t stop the way I was feeling/ The day your record dropped.”
The “White Mustang” video is Del Rey’s third promoting her recentÂ Number One LP,Â Lust for Life, following clips forÂ “Love”Â and theÂ title-trackÂ (featuring the Weeknd).
The vocalist’s fifth album also includes collaborations with A$AP Rocky (“Summer Bummer,” “Groupie Love”), Stevie Nicks (“Beautiful People Beautiful Problems”) and Sean Ono Lennon (“Tomorrow Never Came”).
