Lana Del Rey’s “Tropico” teaser is 13 seconds of pure, unadulterated bliss.
Brace yourselves: Here comes a pain that hurts so good. Lana Del Rey has just unleashed a short teaser of her upcoming short film, “Tropico,” and it’s 13 seconds of pure paradise.
…Followed by 13 seconds of pure agony that the damn thing doesn’t go over 13 seconds. *Hugs legs to chest while tunelessly humming “Sometimes love don’t feel like it should…”*
Watch Lana Del Rey’s “Tropico” teaser after the jump.
Although we don’t have the full 411 on “Tropico,” we do know that the hazy visual is directed by Anthony Mandler, and the record itself is produced by soundboard vet Rick Rubin. We also got some deets from the short film’s poster, which reads: “A tale of redemption told to the music of ‘Body Electric’.”
As for its brief teaser, so far we’ve got a green-hued, veiled Lana repeating the phrase “Dear John, forgive us our sins” over and over. And, of course, there’s the requisite weird shot of a pudgy cowboy carrying a gun, because after all, what kind of Lana Del Rey project would this be without some creepy imagery?
No word on when “Tropico” will officially drop, but, per Lana’s tweet, it’s “coming soon.” AKA vague on vague with a side of vague!
