Watch Lana Del Rey’s Trippy 11-Minute ‘Freak’ Video with Father John Misty

Cady Lang

Lana Del Rey is known for her darkly dreamy, wistful torch songs and equally dramatic music videos, and it looks like her latest video,”Freak,” from her recent album, Honeymoon, is no exception. The nearly 11-minute video features Lana and current collaborator (and equally moody musician) Father John Misty in the desert, presumably in search of some sort of enlightenment, armed with a guitar, acid, Kool-Aid, and gauzy garments.

In grainy, light-dappled takes, we see Misty get fed acid by Lana, while she drinks the Kool-Aid (yes, actually); later, the video segues to slow-motion as the long-haired sirens from Lana’s “Music to Watch Boys To” caress the pair and later appear in an underwater daydream seen in her previous video.

The aesthetics are hazily romantic and perfectly match Lana’s dulcet tones—don’t be shocked if you find yourself tripping sans acid or Kool-Aid.
