Video: Lana Del Rey – “Ride”


In her most recent video for “Ride,” now brunette epic emo hipster starlet Lana Del Rey narrates a journey of finding her path in this 10-minute short film of a music video. The song hits at 3:26 and continues on with the story of a young gal flailing around with her motorcycle crew boos.

The visuals in the video are absolutely stunning and inspiring – definitely transport you into another world, as Lana’s videos so often happen to do. She brings us the climax of her video urging viewers to “live fast, die young, and be wild.” Taking us back to the heart palpitations we experienced watching “Born To Die.”
