Lana Del Rey Gets Far-Out in Spacey “Love” Music Video
Lana Del Rey Gets Far-Out in Spacey “Love” Music Video

Reports that Lana Del Rey had hit the recording studio with both Emile Haynie (who co-produced much of the singer’s 2012 album Born to Die) and Benny Blanco (best known for his work with Kesha and Katy Perry) suggested she might be putting a modern twist on the throwback sound that made her famous. The first taste of those sessions, though, sounds like more of the same, with Del Rey winsomely crooning about cool kids who are “young and in love” set to a minimalist but heady symphonic arrangement that’s reliably, even comfortingly formulaic. “I get ready, I get all dressed up/To go nowhere in particular,” she sings on “Love,” as if describing an entire generation as well as her creative method.
