Watch: 'Born to Die' by Lana del Rey

Tigers and blood.

After being leaked on a Russian bloggertube website, the official version of Lana Del Rey's video for 'Born To Die' has just been released. Visually striking, it follows a futile albeit highly-romanticized relationship between Lana Del Rey and a tattooed guy who would have to be the combined fantasy of every girl on Tumblr. Directed by Woodkid (he of Katy Perry's 'Teenage Dream'), the video includes a combination of Americana imagery, a Sistine-chapel style cathedral, cigarettes, floral headwear, making out on a car bonnet, explosions, tigers and blood (#tigerblood),. We'd tell you how it concludes, but the song title kind of gives it away. Check out Oyster's recent interview with the singer, and watch 'Born To Die' below:
