Sadness — Now With Video!

Lana Del Rey‘s Born To Die is one of those rare albums that just keeps feeling fresher as time goes by — and while “National Anthem” dominated my personal party playlist all last summer, this season is all about “Summertime Sadness.”

The gloomy cut has received a proper single treatment with a big dance remix courtesy of Cedric Gervais, who transforms Lana’s lachrymose original into a dancefloor stomper, and now there’s a video to match.

It’s just stitched together with familiar glitchy footage of Lana in her conventional Tumblrwave style from the original “Summertime Sadness” video, but it’s still a nice visual accompaniment; the euphoric house production contrasts with the melancholy aesthetic in that way that feels quintessentially Lana and, well, if nothing else, the track is straight fire.

Watch up top.
