“Born To Die” (Lana Del Rey Cover) (Live On Radio 1) (Video)

    The Ting Tings are back with a new album titled Sounds from Nowheresville, which was released earlier this week. As you’d expect, the duo is promoting the record heavily in their native U.K., including a session for BBC Radio 1. Among the highlights of that appearance was this cover of Lana Del Rey’s “Born To Die,” which is a stripped down, most un-Ting-Tings-like acoustic rendition of the song. The fizzy pop the band is known for is shoved firmly into the background here, with the band channeling Del Rey to head in a direction that loosely approaches the “adult contemporary” bracket. Does it suit them? Decide for yourself in the clip below. [via AHIAS]
