Lana Del Rey Releases Somber New Cover Of ‘Chelsea Hotel No 2′
Lana Del Rey gives us another song to drown our sorrows yet again. She released a new vintage music video last night covering Leonard Cohen’s song “Chelsea Hotel No. 2″ released in the 1970’s.
According to Billboard, the song is about the famous Chelsea Hotel in New York City, and Cohen later revealed the song was written about Janis Joplin. The video is dark and unique, only showing Lana’s face and hands throughout. The raspy tone of her voice gives the song a beautiful sound, matching the antiqueness and simplicity of the video.
