Lana Del Rey - Doin' Time (Official Music Video) High Quality
Lana Del Rey may not be the first name that pops into your mind when you think of Sublime, but apparently the New Yorker is a fan. On Tuesday (May 7), the singer shared a snippet of her covering the SoCal reggae-rockers' 1996 hit, "Doin' Time." The clips shows Lana sing the song's opening verse at a hypnotizing pace, with a film reel filter on the video. "Summertime and the living's easy," she sings patiently. "And Bradley's on the microphone with ras m.g." She captioned the post "Coming Soon" and tagged the band.
Lana Del Rey - Doin' Time (Official Music Video)
Lana Del Rey is here for all of your end of summer needs. Need a new album? She's got you covered! Need a cover of Sublime's "Doin' Time"? She's got you covered! And she's larger than life in Los Angeles in the music video. Lana Del Rey's cover of Sublime's "Doin' Time" is the sultry, smooth bop we need to close out this summer. And it's also necessary to note that the first line of the first song on her new album, Norman F*cking Rockwell, is "Goddamn man child." We stan.
Del Rey's cover of the Sublime classic came with a music video that paid homage to another pop culture classic. In the music video, Del Rey walks around L.A. in giant form like in the film Attack of the 50 Foot Woman. She picks up a palm tree to fan herself with, which gleefully soothes my extra self, then halfway through the video, it's revealed that the 50-foot Del Rey is actually on a film screen at a drive-in movie theater.
Elizabeth Woolridge Grant, better known as Lana Del Rey, is a singer-songwriter and producer from Lake Placid, New York, United States. Del Rey is known for embellishing her songs and music videos with an eerily nostalgic vibe heavy on Americana themes, including images of surfing, Coney Island, Frank Sinatra, and Marilyn Monroe. She has also listed a large number of her artistic influences, including Allen Ginsberg, Elvis Presley, Britney Spears
The music video starts with a giant Lana Del Rey resting in a empty channel of the Los Angeles River, slowly getting up from her slumber. Lana then stands up to her full height with the city of Los Angeles seen in the background. She rips a palm tree off the ground before she starts her stroll through Downtown Los Angeles.
We cut back to the giant Lana, as she lays on the sandy beach. Then a montage occurs as the giant Lana plays with the sand, followed by getting up and dancing around, before pausing and blowing air towards the audience, which the audience actually feels as a strong gust of wind comes out of the screen. Then the giant Lana approaches the screen, entering the real world from her world. The patrons of the drive in theater flee in fear as the giant Lana towers over them. She then focus on the car where the cheating boyfriend and girl (who have stopped kissing because then noticed her emerging from the screen), bending down and grabbing the car they are in. After picking them up, she shakes the car several times before dropping the car. The music video ends with the girlfriend looking at the giant Lana, the two of them exchanging looks before the giant Lana returns back to her world. 041b061a72
