Lana Del Rey Covers “Blue Velvet” for H&M Commercial

Lana Del Rey has released a cover of Bernie Wayne and Lee Morris’s 1950s pop song “Blue Velvet” for her campaign for the clothing chain H&M.

The cover appears in a commercial for H&M, which undoubtedly draws inspiration from David Lynch’s iconic film Blue Velvet from 1986. The film featured a performance of the song Blue Velvet by Lee Morris.

The short commercial is packed with Lynchian imagery and prominently features Del Rey performing her cover of the nostalgic classic.

Check out the H&M commercial below.
