Lana Del Rey has released an impressively striking video to her ‘National Anthem’ single soon to be released on July 8th.

Lana Del Rey's hit video has totalled over 2.5 million views on You Tube since its release and with the duration at just over 7 minutes is looking to be set as the iconic video of the year.

The video portrays the devastating all-American story of the assassination of John F.Kennedy. Opening with the infamous scene of Lana playing Marilyn Monroe and serenading ‘Happy Birthday’ to JFK the video rolls into the heart-breaking story of JFK and his wife Jackie Onassiss in the lead up to his assassination. Featuring A$AP Rocky as JFK and Lana as his wife Jackie Onassis; the pair re-enact the devoted love and American dream that was both lived and shared between the characters. From a treatment written by Lana, director Anthony Mandler helps to tell the tale of romance and heartbreak.

‘National Anthem’ is the latest single from Lana’s #1 album “Born To Die”. “Born To Die” has already sold over 500,000 copies in the UK, part of nearly 2million global album sales and over 2million singles sales. Lana has won ‘Best Contemporary Song’ for her first international hit “Video Games” at the prestigious Ivor Novello Awards as well as an esteemed Brit award for “Best International Newcomer” earlier this year.


“National Anthem” is being released on Polydor Records and will be available on digital download and 7” picture disc, also available is a digital remix EP.
