Lana Del Rey Gets Freaky with Father John Misty in 'Freak' Video

After a handful of teases, Lana Del Rey's epic music video co-starring Father John Misty has arrived. The "Freak" video, which premiered on Tuesday night (Feb. 9), is the latest visual from the singer's Honeymoon album.

Anyone who's seen Del Rey's Tropico knows that she can turn her dreamy pop into daring, extended videos, and at 11 minutes, "Freak" is certainly that. Slow-motion tripping scenes are spliced next to… slow-motion dream sequences, we get close-ups of Father John Misty's tongue, and eventually "Freak" leads into Claude Debussy's "Clair de Lune."

"Freak" follows the cinematic videos for "Music To Watch Boys To" and "High By The Beach," among others. It does not follow a Lana Del Rey James Bond theme song, despite Del Rey's best intentions.
