Earlier this month, Sky Ferreira dazzled the pages of V Magazine with an homage to Madonna, donning over a dozen of the Queen of Pop’s most iconic looks (while simultaneously throwing my inner fan-boy into a full-on tizzy.)
Now, the brooding alt-Pop Princess has tickled my fancy yet again by paying homage to Miss Lana Del Rey.
About an hour ago, Ferreira uploaded a cover of Del Rey’s “Blue Jeans” on her official SoundCloud–and then took it down about a half hour later. (Legal issues? I just don’t know.) Nevertheless, Sky stans got a hold of the track quickly, and they’re not about to let it go.
Recorded atop of a single piano melody, Sky’s world-weary (but wild at heart!) vocals fit Lana’s lonesome tune effortlessly. Yet as with her cover of Miike Snow‘s “Animal” and Stevie Nicks‘ “Stand Back,” Ferreira’s take on the track is distinctly her own, resulting in a more raw, vulnerable production.
Sure, it’s just a rough take, but that’s the beauty of it all! As the stunning songstress wrote in the description (which, again, has since been removed): “It’s not perfect. That’s the point.”
“Hope you guys like it. Most of all I hope she likes it. Girl Power! <3" she writes on her Tumblr. Hear that? Sky loves her some Lana too! Bye haters!
Team Lana. Team Sky. Team WIN!
