Lana Del Rey ponders a precarious romance in her “White Mustang” video, set in a futuristic L.A. The clip opens by zooming in on the singer’s CGI mansion, where she gazes longingly at her distant, preoccupied musician boyfriend (Icelandic actor Eðvarð Egilsson). The piece climaxes with a blank-faced Del Rey driving around in the titular vehicle, soundtracked by a mariachi trumpet solo.
The singer details this ill-fated relationship in the lyrics. “Slippin’ on my dress in soft filters/ Everybody said you’re a killer,” she croons over piano and electronics. “But I couldn’t stop the way I was feeling/ The day your record dropped.”
The vocalist’s fifth album also includes collaborations with A$AP Rocky (“Summer Bummer,” “Groupie Love”), Stevie Nicks (“Beautiful People Beautiful Problems”) and Sean Ono Lennon (“Tomorrow Never Came”).
