Lana Del Rey - You'll Never Walk Alone

Lana Del Rey is well known for her vintage aesthetic and stories of tragic romance and perpetual sadness.

Through her music and visuals, she manages to create the stories and feelings to vividly to take listeners on emotional journeys. Lana is recognised for her considered and original ideas which can seem wild, yet courageous. Her art can be breathtaking, and admirable, from the music itself, through to her image and art direction.

In a slightly different move, Lana Del Rey has now just released a limited vinyl edition of Liverpool FC’s anthem ‘’You’ll Never Walk Alone’’ cover by giving it her classic twist. All profit is going straight to The Liverpool FC foundation charity. The song was originally in Rodgers & Hammerstein musical carousel, and in 1963 Gerry and the Pacemakers covered the song. It became the well-known crowd anthem of the Premier League champions.

The collaboration with Liverpool FC is for sale at the Liverpool FC store since the 7th of December 2020. The cover is sending shivers down fans backs, leaving them with a nostalgic feeling of when the became Liverpool fans. Lana introduced the collaboration by posting an aesthetic vintage-looking video in black and white whilst in the studio on Instagram IGTV. In the video, she is singing an acapella version of the cover with the caption explaining that it was recorded for a new documentary.

Lana has a mesmerising voice, which is intensely soulful. Her rich voice is capable of giving anybody goosebumps and she was the perfect artists to re-sing this song for the documentary. Not only is she a well-known superstar who has won multiple awards throughout the years including NME ‘Best Fucking Album in the World’, but also the Best Female Brit Award and many more.

This could be the first time some fans have been introduced to Lana del Rey, which means she may grow her fan base with those who have enjoyed her cover of the song. Lana sings in a classic jazz style voice which many have compared to vocalists from 1940s up to the 1970s. Her music takes you into another dimension, not only giving you an old school holly wood vibe but a feeling from a simpler time.

Lana can bring that vintage feel to life in the 21st century and make help us imagine what it could have looked or felt like in times gone by.
