In the Rich Lee-directed clip, which alternates between black-and-white and washed-out color, Del Rey sings “Love” juxtaposed with footage of people “young and in love.”
However, in the second half of the video, things take a sci-fi turn as the young lovers are shown orbiting in space and walking distant planets; Del Rey and her band are also shown performing on a lunar landscape.
“Love” is the first single from Del Rey’s upcoming fifth studio album, a “body of work” created by the singer and her longtime producer and collaborator Rick Nowels. Benny Blanco and Emile Haynie also contributed to the album.
“I made my first 4 albums for me, but this one is for my fans and about where I hope we are all headed,” Del Rey said in a statement.
The new album’s release date, track list and “exciting guest featured artists” will be revealed at a later date.
