Lana Del Rey Covers ‘Heart-Shaped Box’ In Sydney
Singer offers delicate take on 1993 Nirvana hit
Playing in Sydney, Australia on Saturday night, Lana Del Rey took onÂ Nirvana’sÂ “Heart-Shaped Box,” offering a delicate cover of the cathartic track. ThoughÂ Kurt CobainÂ sang the original as a tortured love song, Del Rey takes a more indirect route. Singing over swooning strings and wandering back and forth behind a bushy hedge on stage, Del Rey graced the verses with an airy delivery before daintily belting the mighty chorus without Cobain’s guttural growl.
Earlier this week, Boy George released aÂ video for his coverÂ of Del Rey’s “Video Games.”
