Lana Del Rey has released her new music video for "Blue Jeans," the third single off her first major-label album "Born to Die," which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart.
Wearing only a white vintage-looking bathing suit, Del Rey unleashes her sensual side in the monochromatic video, directed by Yoann Lemoine, who also directed her video for "Born to Die."
In "Blue Jeans," Del Rey is seen floating in and out of a swimming pool, while wrapped in the arms of a tattooed man, played by model Bradley Soileau, who also starred in Del Rey's "Born to Die" video. However, the singer's tattooed model isn't the only one joining her for a swim. Halfway through the video, two alligators are seen swimming past the couple underwater.
Del Rey also self-released a video for "Blue Jeans" in 2011. In the first video, Del Rey gathered old video clips online, including footage from Australian photographer Nirrimi Joy Firebrace's "tender hearted" project, and filmed herself in front of her webcam.
