Lana Del Rey swims, lounges and mugs for the camera in the impressionistic video for her Honeymoon tune "Music to Watch Boys To." Although the clip features a few scenes that live up to the song's male-objectifying title, the most curious vignette finds the singer reclining in a beach chair as gramophone horns spin around her and the silhouette of one of her boys plays basketball. Then, after a shot of them playing hoops, the camera gives her a close-up for her line about "singing soft-grunge."
When the singer premiered the tune, which she co-wrote with "Summertime Sadness" collaborator Rick Boyles, on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 show earlier this month, she called it one of her favorites on the LP. In an interview with Los Angeles Times, she spoke on the song's evocative nature. "The title lends itself to a visual of shadows of men passing by, this girl's eyes, her face," Del Rey said. "I can definitely see things."
Del Rey put out Honeymoon earlier this month and, prior to its release, recently premiered another song, "Salvatore," via BBC 1. "[It's] the most different from all the other tracks on the record," she said at the time. "It has a little bit of an old world Italian feel, it's kind of a weirder song, but I love the chorus."
Del Rey has compared the album as a whole to her first two releases, Born to Die and Paradise. "It's growing into something I really like," she said of Honeymoon in an interview with Billboard in January. "I'm kind of enjoying sinking into this more noirish feel for this one. It's been good."
