If Lana Del Rey Covered Britney Spears’ “Baby One More Time” It Would Probably Sound Like This

Sia Covers "California Dreamin'"
Hear her emotive cover for the 'San Andreas' soundtrack.

Gloomy, minor key covers of iconic, upbeat pop songs are all the rage right now. It seems like every TV and movie trailer looking to add some gravitas employs this tactic, and it’s become as tired as the BRAAAM effect. But there’s still life in the idea yet! Swedish newcomer MIYNT offers up her sparse acoustic cover of Britney Spears‘ debut single “…Baby One More Time,” turning the sassy track into the sort of glamorous, cooed wallow that Lana Del Rey made her name on.

This is certainly one intriguing way to get people to check out your Soundcloud page, and thankfully the rendition isn’t attached to some bloated, melodramatic trailer (yet).  Give it a listen below.
