LISTEN: LANA DEL REY – “BLUE VELVET”

Lana Del Rey‘s much-discussed appointment as the face of H&M’s fall-winter 2012 campaign gets another talking point, with the release of the first commercial featuring the “Born to Die” chanteuse. The 30-second spot shows LDR—complete with a full-on Lisa Marie bouffant—performing a robotic but sonically perfect rendition of the 1963 Bobby Vinton classic, “Blue Velvet,” in a hotel lobby for an array of quirky characters. With its brooding noir attitude, head-scratching plot line, and yes, even a dwarf, the whole thing plays like a well made audition reel for the lead role in the next David Lynch film. Actually, we’d probably pay to see that.

Check out the commercial and listen to the full-length version of Del Rey’s smoldering cover song, below.
