Lana Del Rey has posted the video for 'Carmen' online, the next track to be taken from her Number One album 'Born To Die. Scroll down to watch.

The video is made up of a collection of found footage, vintage clips and shots of Del Rey, much like the DIY video which accompanied her 2011 debut single, 'Video Games'.

It features pole dancers, images of New York City, Del Rey snuggling up to a blond haired man on the back of a motorcycle and live footage of the singer performing onstage.

Kasabian's Serge Pizzorno recently gave Lana Del Rey's cover of their single 'Goodbye Kiss' his seal of approval. The guitarist and songwriter told NME that he thinks the track sounds "fucking beautiful" and thanked the 'Born To Die' singer for picking the track to cover.

He added: "I'm really proud. Obviously we covered one of hers, 'Video Games', so it was quite a sweet thing to do back. It's a really nice gesture. It's proper old school."

Lana Del Rey, who covered the track for BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge, revealed she first heard the Leicester band's music through her boyfriends. She told Fearne Cotton: "All of my boyfriends had loved Kasabian and I'd never listened to them. I started and I really like this song. I love this song and I love the melody, I love the way the boys sing it."
