Lana Del Rey Shares “High By The Beach” Video

She shoots down a helicopter.

August 13, 2015

Lana Del Rey just released her new single, "High By The Beach," and she wasted little time in unveiling the video for the track. It's a literal-minded clip: the action opens with Lana staring at a distant helicopter as she sings, I look at you looking at me/ I know you know how I feel. Naturally, she's on a house by the beach. The helicopter keeps bothering her—likely addicted to the song's narcotic hook—until it's too late. (There are shades of Nicki Minaj's "Looking Ass" video, which also involves gunning down the male gaze.) Watch above, and revisit FADER's cover story on the singer.
