Can you believe it’s been almost a month since we posted our last Lana Del Rey cover? That doesn’t mean they’ve stopped coming though. So, like we did once before, we’re gonna slam a bunch together in one Lana Del Rey megapost. Makes it that much easier for the fans to find and the haters to skip.

R&B singer Mateo’s gotten a ton of buzz this past month for his free Art Dealer Chic EPs and his smooth loverman persona comes across just as strong in this “Blue Jeans” cover.

Alice Jemina delivers a spooky, Twin Peaks-y version of “Million Dollar Man.” Like Loretta Lynn singing with the-Dream production.

Pulled Apart by Horses stopped by the BBC Live Lounge (ground zero for LDR covers) and radically deconstructed “Blue Jeans,” with riffs, hollers, and walls of distortion.

Scottish singer-songwriter Withered Hand performed a beautiful acoustic “Video Games” at a Record Store Day in-store.

We last heard Metaphorest covering Kate Bush, James Vincent McMorrow, and the Shirelles in October and she’s kept busy since. Her “Blue Jeans” picks up the pace a bit, skipping along with more energy than the languid original.
