Sky Ferreira has been on a hot streak and shows no sign of cooling off. The 20-year-old has collaborated with Dev Hynes, did a stunning campaign with Yves Saint Laurent, and has just released a cover of Cher‘s (yes Cher’s…Nancy Sinatra covered her) “Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)” with 2Cellos.

Off of 2Cellos new album, In2ition, the cover is nothing short of chilling. While 2Cellos entire album won’t be available until later this week, this track is available for your aural pleasure. The sparse composition makes this cover a more haunting and brooding take on the original, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

Listen to more Sky Ferreira over on her official website.

  1. Have you never heard Nancy Sinatra’s version…..no?..then watch Kill Bill Part 1.

  2. For some reason I thought this was going to be terrible but this really is quite special.
