Lana Del Rey In The Hands Of Blood Orange
Synthetic revision of “Blue Jeans”
Lana Del Rey can be proud of many things, like the interest her songs awake among remixers of all kinds, some of them quite prestigious. The results, well, that's a different story. But this one here is a good one, we think. Blood Orange, a.k.a. Dev Hynes, chose “ Blue Jeans” for a minimalist, dark synth-pop revision - much in the vein of what he's been doing in recent months. Check out the remix, with that ice-cold keyboard intro, here.
In other news, we can also bring you Boy George's take on “Video Games”, a curious version made with acoustic guitars, slides and strings - taking the track to chamber pop territory, with a faint echo of country music.
