Published Dec 27, 2011These days, it seems like everyone is fawning over indie queen Lana Del Rey, who is gearing up to release her album Born to Die next year. Clearly, Titus Andronicus frontman Patrick Stickles is a big fan, since he just posted a piano cover of Lana's blog-favourite "Video Games."
This intimate cover was recorded at Stickles' parents' house, evidently using a webcam. He wrote on Twitter, "ME COVERING 'VIDEO GAMES' BECAUSE I HAVE BEEN THE MAN IN THAT SONG #REALTALK." This sparked a lengthy series of posts about Lana, and he added, "'Girl, there is a pain in my heart you can never understand. Buzz off and let me play San Andreas.' Man, this song is really real."
Watch his emotive, slightly sloppy cover below.
