If “Doin Time” wasn’t enough proof, Lana Del Rey has some new evidence that she can really kill a cover. This time it’s her rendition of Joni Mitchell’s “For Free” that came out in 1970. You might want to break out some tissues because it’s emotional and as soft as a baby’s bottom.
Lana debuted the cover at the Seattle stop of her Norman Fucking Rockwell tour last night (October 2). Her rendition of Mitchell’s tune only had two parts; her voice, of course, soft and elegant, and a powerful piano. Lana’s calm performance largely stuck to one place on stage as she calmed every soul in the building with the delicate words. It was a soothing experience for everyone involved.
