Lana Del Rey revealed a new video directed by Kinga Burza for “Music To Watch Boys To" on Vevo today, watch it here.
Fans and critics alike have been celebrating the September 18 release of Del Rey’s 'Honeymoon' (Interscope/Polydor UK). Rolling Stone Magazine called ‘Honeymoon’ “her most genuinely thrilling music ever” in a 4-star review, and the Evening Standard of London said that ‘Honeymoon’ earns Del Rey the title of "most captivating pop star on the planet.” ‘Honeymoon' became Del Rey's 4th consecutive top 10 album as it entered at #1 in Australia and Ireland, and at #2 in the United States, UK, Italy, Belgium, and New Zealand. ‘Honeymoon’ also charted Top 10 in France, Germany, Sweden, and the Netherlands, and has been streamed over 16.5 million times worldwide on Spotify.
Fan reaction to ‘Honeymoon’ has been joyous, with Lana's supporters camping out overnight for in-store album signings in London, NY, and Los Angeles. Del Rey returned the love by spending over 5 hours signing autographs at each store. Fans flocked to in-store listening sessions at Urban Outfitters stores across the U.S. when the full album was debuted there on September 12, and the retailer reported that first-week sales of the special-cover vinyl for Del Rey’s ‘Honeymoon’ outpaced any others in the store’s history.
The rapturous response to ‘Honeymoon’ continues a triumphant trend for Del Rey in 2015. Her title song for the Tim Burton film "Big Eyes" was nominated for a Golden Globe and her sold-out 'Endless Summer' tour was the artist's most successful to date, with 18 shows across North America and headliner slots at Sasquatch and Governors Ball Music Festivals.
Lana Del Rey has been one of the most intriguing figures in music since her Jan. 2012 debut album 'Born to Die,' which has been on the Billboard 200 for 191 consecutive weeks since its release. Her second release, ‘Paradise’ (Nov. 2012), was praised as "truly great" by Entertainment Weekly. Del Rey's third album, 'Ultraviolence' (June 2014), was called, "the perfect musical vehicle for her vision" by Pitchfork. Del Rey has sold 8 million albums and her music has been streamed over 1.6 Billion times.
