Lana Del Rey debuts dark 'Carmen' music video

Enigmatic songstress Lana Del Rey has delighted her fans around the world after she unveiled the video for her album track, 'Carmen'.

The singer took to social networking site Twitter late last night (April 21) and teased: "CARMEN. Explains everything. I made you something."

Following the message, Del Rey uploaded a video for the cut and thanked her collaborators for helping put it together:

"Thank you to all of the beautiful filmmakers that helped make this video."

The song itself examines the story of a 17-year-old street walker battling addiction and some of the lyrics are hard-hitting in terms of content:

"She says you don't wanna be like me, don't wanna see all the things I've seen. I'm dying, I'm dying."



Visually, 'Carmen' is similar to 'Video Games' in that it's comprised of clips edited together although it has a darker nature and shows footage of a pole dancer, Del Rey herself with a love interest and several shots of scientific images (pictured above) related to drug use.
