#songoftheday / VIDEO: Lana Del Rey: “Freak” (co-starring Father John Misty)

RED HOT REMIX: Lana Del Rey – Brooklyn Baby (Monsieur Adi Remix)
Oh, this is a good one... As he always does, Monsieur Adi has created a remix that feels so natural you'd swear it was the original album version of the song and those tend to be my favorite remixes. I also appreciate the fact that it's not...
