Lana Del Rey To Cover “Once Upon A Dream” For ‘Maleficent’ Soundtrack, Remains Queen of Soundtracks
#PhuckYoOscars, you little bitches.
While she might have been rudely and unjustly snubbed by the Oscars this year with her gorgeous Gatsby classic “Young & Beautiful,” Born To Die goddess and soon-to-be Ultraviolence Queen Lana Del Rey is getting ready to appear on a brand new movie soundtrack.
On January 26 (three days, y’all!), the “Diet Mountain Dew” diva will be releasing a cover of the Sleeping Beauty theme, “Once Upon A Dream” for the upcoming Angelina Jolie-helmed #SomethingMoreDark take on Sleeping Beauty, Maleficent.
As a refresher, here’s the classic for your listening pleasure:
And now, here is “Lovesick” songstress Emily Osment‘s modern ‘pop-rock’ rendition of the song — which will soon be rendered irrelevant, obviously.
Considering this is a song for Maleficent, Lana’s take will no doubt be as dark and brooding as we could hope, just like her mesmerizing cover of “Blue Velvet.” It (probably) won’t count for the Oscars next year since it’s a cover and not an original, but whatever: New Lana trumps all of the awards.
A dream within a dream, indeed.
