Lana Del Rey adds to her mystery in the new video for her cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Chelsea Hotel.” In a darkly lit room, she croons the Janis Joplin inspired song in a sometimes sweet and sometimes raw tone. The video has a familiar old-school aesthetic and sharp edits. The “Born To Die” singer has been busy recording the soundtrack for the upcoming film “The Great Gatsby” starring Leonardo Dicaprio. The soundtrack is being overlooked by The God MC himself Jay-Z who will also produce new music for the soundtrack, as well as Lady Gaga and Prince.
