Last month, Lana Del Rey shared her new duet with The Weeknd, “Lust For Life,” the title track from her upcoming album. Today, we get to see the pair together in the retro new music video. Listen closely and you’ll hear some of the lyrics come to life.
The video starts with Lana performing the song, accompanied by two backup dancers. Lana loses interest 30 seconds into the song, and decides to run offstage and climb up the H of the Hollywood sign. There she meets The Weeknd, and they gaze at the city lights below them. Eventually Lana and The Weeknd run to the D and slide off onto the grass below. The “Lust For Life” video is simple and reflects the vintage futurism we saw in Lana’s video for “Love.”
Watch the “Lust For Life” music video below:
“Lust For Life” is just the latest collaboration we’ve heard between Lana Del Rey and The Weeknd. They first appeared together on the song “Prisoner,” which was included on The Weeknd’s 2015 album, Beauty Behind The Madness. Last year, he released his album Starboy. Lana co-wrote and sang on both “Party Monster” and “Stargirl Interlude.”
Besides frequent collaborator The Weeknd, Lana also recorded duets with Stevie Nicks and Sean Lennon for the upcoming album. She previously mentioned songs like “Yosemite” and “Tomorrow Never Came” (her duet with Sean Lennon). More recently, Lana talked about “God Bless America,” a track she wrote about the Women’s Marches earlier this year.
So far, “Love” and “Lust For Life” are the only two songs we’ve heard from the album. Last week, Lana also shared a political new song called “Coachella – Woodstock In My Mind,” though it’s unclear whether that will be on Lust For Life. Over the weekend, Lana also performed a brand new song called “Cherry” at the KROQ Weenie Roast y Fiesta.
Lust For Life is rumored to be out this Friday, May 26th. However, no date has been confirmed, and the record may not be out until June or July. And although we know some song names, a tracklist is not yet available. Catch up on all we know about Lust For Life so far, and keep checking back here for all the latest Lana Del Rey news.
