Lana Del Rey’s “Freak” Music Video Is 11 Minutes Long… and Is Also a Debussy Music Video


Lana Del Ray’s “Freak,” the trippy ballad from her 2015 album Honeymoon, is four minutes and 55 seconds, according to Spotify. The music video for “Freak,” which was released Tuesday, is more than twice that long.

As Del Rey teased last month, the video prominently features algorithm-based common interest Father John Misty, who joins her for a hallucinatory jaunt in the California hills.

After the song draws to a close, there’s an extra five minutes of the women from Del Rey’s “Music to Watch Boys to” video swimming to Claude Debussy’s “Clair de Lune,” the famous movement from Suite bergamasque. This goes on for so long that you wonder why the video’s title didn’t shout out the movement — “Lana Del Rey’s ‘Freak’ feat. Debussy” has a certain ring to it.
