On this day, 5 years ago Lana Del Rey released the music video for her song High By The Beach.

According to Wikipedia, the video is primarily shot in a hand-held camera technique with very little editing or cuts. The video begins with Del Rey wearing a low-cut white sundress over a black bra and a sea glass blue robe entering a beach house as a helicopter hovers above her. After entering the house, the camera follows Del Rey from behind as she walks upstairs, posing in front of a mirror and collapsing on her bed, randomly rolling on it.  Del Rey then runs outside onto the beach and pulls out a guitar case from beneath a pile of rocks. When she returns to the balcony, she opens the case and removes a large firearm from it. She turns toward the photographer and fires the gun at the helicopter, destroying it and the photographer.

As of August 2020, the video amasssed a total of 115 M views.

A synth-led, trap-inspired indie pop song, High By The Beach was one of the last songs made for Honeymoon and served as the album's lead single.

What is your opinion on the song, video or album :lana:? Do you think it was a good choice for a lead single? Do you remeber it actually being released?
