The Nexus is the collective name for the songwriters and producers David Sneddon and James Bauer-Mein. The production team have worked with Lana Del Rey several times, most notably on National Anthem for her debut major-label album Born to Die, which was received well both by critics and fans alike.
Work on National Anthem
The team created a demo for the song with a more pop-orientated production for which Del Rey created a homemade video. The production was later scrapped for a sound more fitting to the album, though the pair's work as writers are still credited. The song was later released as the fifth and last single from the album overall and it's video was met with critical acclaim.
