Lana Del Rey Looks Back With National Anthem Video

.
(popmusiclife) Lana Del Rey is turning heads with this week's release of her new video for "National Anthem" from her "Born To Die" album.

The clip features Del Rey playing Jacqueline to A$AP Rocky's John F. Kennedy in a throwback to early 60s America. "Lana was really interested in exploring this loss of innocence, this idea that what you think you're experiencing is maybe not what it's always going to be," director Anthony Mandler told MTV. "Because when you say 'Kennedy,' that immediately evokes something ... so I think using that power, that pedigree of the story is a really fascinating place to show the loss of something, the breakdown of something."

In the opening of the video, Del Rey plays Marilyn Monroe as she recreates the movie icon's version of "Happy Birthday" as sung to Kennedy. Watch the video here.
