The singer and her lover join forces for their version of the iconic Lee Hazlewood penned track
Del Rey has joined forces with her boyfriend Barrie-James O’Neill of Scottish rockers Kassidy to record the song. She has released a grainy DIY video of the loved-up, photogenic couple hanging out at the beach and on a picturesque balcony in Los Angeles singing the track.

Del Rey has revealed that her forthcoming second album will be a more “spiritual” affair.
The ‘Video Games’ singer, who now lives in the UK, has been writing songs for the follow-up to her 2012 debut album ‘Born To Die’ in Santa Monica, and has said she now knows what her new record will sound like – stripped down but still cinematic and dark, apparently.
She told BBC Radio 1 Newsbeat that her songwriting has “moved on to a more spiritual place lyrically”.
She said: “It’s a little more stripped down but still cinematic and dark. I’ve been working on it really slowly but I love everything I’ve done. I’ve been writing in Santa Monica and I know what the record sounds like. Musically, I’ve worked with the same three guys. Now I just have to finish it.”
