Lana Del Rey "Freak"

When Lana Del Rey drops a new video, it’s a good idea to stop what you’re doing and clear out some space in your schedule. And that’s not just because they tend to be long; yes, this new one is 11 minutes, but like “High By the Beach” and “Music to Watch Boys To”  it’s going to leave you pondering Lana’s mesmerizing persona.

It’s got acid, California, and as promised, Father John Misty. The girls from Lana Del Rey’s aforementioned “Boys” video also appear, and reprise their slow-motion underwater dancing roles. That’s French composer Claude Debussy's 1905 piece "Clair de Lune” playing after “Freak” cuts out.

So what do you think -- would hanging with Lana and Father John backstage at Coachella be a good decision?
