If you didn’t catch Lana’s extended interview with Fearne Cotton on Radio 1 recently, it was a compelling and revealing insight, expanding on her American sweetheart facade and finding out the drive behind certain career choices and decisions. Fearne was clearly in awe (who wouldn’t be?) and exposed a personal connection with Lana’s debut single ‘Video Games’, saying it was a truly ‘seminal moment’ for her.
As always on live lounge, the artist sings a live version of their latest choon and then has to choose a cover to blow the listeners away. Some have been great… others distinctly average. I have previously posted on the dilemma of covers, which also happens to dissect Lana in the process, take a look here. Lana’s was anything but average. She performed a cover of Kasabians ‘Goodbye Kiss’ with the drowsy happiness only she can pull off.
Lana said how she loved their cover of her ‘Video Games’ so wanted to return the favour and lay her vocals to one of their more melodic and sad songs. It brings a whole new level of loss to the track, her vocal drags over the lyrics, like the lover in the song, dragging his feet saying goodbye.
