The concept of “Music To Watch Boys To” was first revealed back in June 2014 in an interview with Fearne Cotton. This song is also a nod to an earlier track “This Is What Makes Us Girls,” from an older, more mature view.

It was the second single from Lana Del Rey’s fourth studio album, Honeymoon. The song premiered on Apple Music’s Beats 1 Radio, and the single artwork being revealed through Instagram on September 9th, 2015.

In a Grazia interview, Lana said she wrote this song in a visual, noirish way, adding:
"The title lends itself to a visual of shadows of men passing by, this girl’s eyes, her face. I can definitely see things."

The music video was released on September 30th, 2015 and was directed by Kinga Burza. It features model Jake Mast, who tweeted on June 4th that he had filmed with Del Rey earlier in the year.
