[HOT] Lana Del Rey – Blue Velvet

Sultry pop vixen Lana Del Rey is back with a stunning cover of the 1950s favourite “Blue Velvet” as part of her promo work for clothing giant H&M. The song was used in David Lynch‘s 1986 film Blue Velvet, and the advertising spot is suitably surreal and disorientating in homage to Lynch’s film-making style. Lana’s on fine form here, with her lower-register vocals taking a hypnotic and dark turn to create a very individual twist on a classic. Check out the commercial clip, followed by the full track below. As a bonus, listen to another of Lana’s newly surfaced tracks, the electronica-infused “Backfire.”

THEBLKHANDS are an upcoming independent rap group out of New York City. If you haven’t heard them yet, then consider this a proper introduction. The trio is comprised of rappers Cazzie Jetson and Dominic Serendip and producer ILLA. They’ve already garnered some interest, with endorsements from Big K.R.I.T., Smoke DZA, and Skyzoo, who will all be featured on their upcoming album. Their latest single features a sample of Lana Del Rey‘s breakout hit, “Video Games,” putting a spin on the track quite like any other remix before. It’s this willingness by THEBLKHANDS to consistently push the boundaries of their music that certainly gives the group one of the brightest futures in the game.

Lana Del Rey – Summertime Sadness (Hannes Fischer Remix)

Ah, the last weekend of August. Summer seems to be the hardest season to bid farewell to, and who to better articulate that melancholy feeling than Lana Del Rey? But if you find her version of “Summertime Sadness” to be too somber and brooding, there’s an alternative. On this remix, Berlin’s Hannes Fischer brightens up the mood a little, allowing in more light while keeping the gloomy clouds at bay, for a simpler, orchestral-pop vibe. That’s not to say it is devoid of yearning romanticism — that’s a Lana trademark, after all — there’s just less of it, which is hardly a bad thing.

Listen to the original and the remix below. “Summertime Sadness” is off Lana Del Rey’s album Born To Die. Check out more of Hannes Fischer’s music, including remixes of Bon Iver, Feist, Adele, and Little Dragon, on his Soundcloud page.
