Singer hooks up with 'Born To Die' actor Bradley Soileau once again
Lana Del Rey has unveiled her video for her new single ‘Blue Jeans’, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to watch the video.
The video, which is entirely black and white, features Del Rey in a swimsuit playing in a pool with actor Bradley Soileau, the same actor who co-starred in her video for ‘Born To Die’.
The promo for ‘Blue Jeans’ has been directed by Yoann Lemoine and serves as a prequel for the ‘Born To Die’ promo, showing the early, happy days of a relationship, which ends very badly in the ‘Born To Die’ video. You can see a still of Del Rey and Soileau in the video on the right hand side of your screen.
An unofficial version of the video emerged yesterday (March 19), but was swiftly removed after complaints from Del Rey’s record label. Reaction to the video from online commentators has been mixed, with some admiring the video’s look and others commenting negatively on Del Rey’s choice to spend the whole video in a swimsuit.
The singer, who is also scheduled to perform at Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Hackney in June, will play a 45-minute set in the festival’s Big Top Tent on the festival’s opening night (June 22). The festival, which will be headlined by Pearl Jam, Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen, takes place from June 22–24 next summer.
