Lana Del Rey’s cover of Madonna’s Evita soundtrack song “You Must Love Me” is tender and poetic.
Lana Del Rey’s cover of Madonna’s Evita soundtrack song “You Must Love Me” has arrived.
UPDATE // MARCH 5:
Lana Del Rey’s cover of “You Must Love Me” from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s upcoming LP, Unmasked: The Platinum Collection, is now available to stream.
On it, Lana shows off her sugary sweet vocal range as she sings about love’s ups and downs over a tender piano melody. It’s a must-listen! Give it a play below:
UPDATE // FEBRUARY 27:
The rumors were true! Lana Del Rey recorded a version of “You Must Love Me” for Andrew Lloyd Webber’s upcoming LP, Unmasked: The Platinum Collection, out March 16.
It’s not clear how, but her rendition hit the net ahead of schedule.
No, I can’t point you in the right direction, but when it does drop… expect to hear music magic. She sounds like a fairy tell princess on it (from what I’m told wink wink).
“Andrew Lloyd Webber has been one of my primary inspirations in music,” Lana said in a statement earlier this month. “To do a cover of one of his songs is a dream.”
EARLIER // JANUARY 18:
This is unexpected, but what a great surprise! According to PPL Repertoire, Lana has recently registered a song titled “You Must Love Me.” Fans believe it’s the Madonna x Evita cover because not only is the title the same, but so is the duration of both songs. Lana’s version clocks in at 2:44.
It’s not clear when the Lust For Life singer will release it, if ever, or if it’s meant for a new album or a movie soundtrack, but one thing’s for sure: this track does exist.
Give Madonna’s version a play below and use your imagination to substitute Lana’s dreamy vocals. This is going to be epic. And extremely depressing.
