When it was announced a while ago that Lana Del Rey had been contracted to be the new face for H&M, I thought maybe we’d been granted a reprieve: she’s quit music! Not exactly. She performed ‘Blue Velvet’, a song I was subjected far too much to in my younger years because of my mother’s love for Bobby Vinton. While this video is mostly showing off H&M’s new wares, there is a snippet of Del Rey singing in her usual style – and moving her arms in the same way she always does. Watch it below.
