Lana del Rey Covers a Leonard Cohen Classic

By  March 28, 2013

Oh LDR, where have you been?

Since the singer-songwriter released her video “Burning Desire” with Jaguar, she’s been hiding out in London. The Paradise singer just released a cover of Leonard Cohen’s classic “Chelsea Hotel No 2,” which recounts a short-lived affair with the late Janis Joplin.

The video itself features del Rey adding her signature haunting vocals to the track by singing into an old-school mic in a room with a plush couch and surrounded by guitars as she watches old home movie clips of the hotel and an unknown person smoking. While she might not be working on a new album any time soon, this is sure to tide us over for a while.
