Lana Del Rey Drops "High By The Beach"

My feelings about the inimitable Lana Del Rey apply to few other artists, in that, I like her because I always get exactly what I've come to expect of her. I'd be disappointed if she tried anything different.

After years of interviews, photo shoots and singles that have carefully added to her (sometimes ridiculous) "gangster Nancy Sinatra" persona, I want nothing less than the forbidden, violent, druggy, beautiful pursuits of a blasé damsel and her bad boy.

Good thing that her second single, "High By The Beach," off her upcoming fourth album Honeymoon is (even in its title) classic Lana. Although ditching some of her coined orchestral backing for a sleepy bass and more accessible synth, Del Rey delivers that lyrical deliciousness with lines like  "You could be a bad motherfucker, but that don't make you my man" and "All I wanna do is get high by the beach." 

The video is set to drop later today, and from what we've been given in Instagram teasers, it looks like it star Lana, on a beach, with a massive machine gun. Amen.

Update: The video dropped. Enjoy.
