Lana Del Rey goes ‘Attack of the 50 Foot Woman’ for ‘Doin’ Time’

Summer may be ending, but Lana Del Rey is not letting that happen without a new music video. On Thursday (Aug. 29), a day before her new album is set to drop, the California-loving singer unleashed the music video for her cover of Sublime’s “Doin’ Time.”

The four-and-a-half-minute clip finds Del Rey channel the 1958 film “Attack of the 50 Foot Woman.” Del Rey plays the 50-foot woman who spends her time walking around Venice like it’s nothing more than a playground. We watch as she strolls around the downtown area, checks her makeup in a building, and eventually reaches the beach.

In a twist, the giant Del Rey is just part of a film that is playing at a drive-in where a blonde-wig wearing Del Rey (Lizzy Grant, is that you?) is with a date. After her partner goes missing, she goes to look for him and finds him in a car, making out with another girl.

While our blonde version of the singer just walks off, the giant version comes off of the screen to show the two-timing louse what a scumbag he is before returning to the screen.

“Doin’ Time” is featured on Del Rey’s much-anticipated sixth studio album. Norman Fucking Rockwell is due out this Friday, Aug. 30 through Interscope Records. Pre-orders are available for purchase here.

As previously revealed, Jack Antonoff, Rick Nowels, Zach Dawes, and Happy Perez are all listed as producers on the upcoming album.

How to Disappear,” “Venice Bitch,” “Mariners Apartment Complex,” and “hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me…but I have it,” “Fuck It I Love You” and “The Greatest.”

In support of the new album, Del Rey will embark on a fall time tour later this year. The short North American leg of the tour begins on Sept. 21 at the Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh, New York and concludes on Oct. 10 at the Cal Coast Credit Union Open Air Theatre in San Diego.
