Watch Royal Blood Cover Lana Del Rey’s ‘West Coast’
Lana Del Rey has been enjoying a lot of success with her latest single, 'West Coast.' Just this week, she stayed firmly put in the Triple A Radio Charts' Top 5, clocking in at No. 4. Del Rey's second LP, 'Born to Die,' was the fifth best-selling vinyl album in the first six months of 2014. Needless to say, she's having a pretty good year.
Speaking of having a pretty good year, the U.K. duo Royal Blood are enjoying more fame than most, what with their debut self-titled LP nabbing the No. 1 spot on the U.K. charts and being nominated for a Mercury Prize (just about the most prestigious musical award in the U.K.).
With these two powerhouses currently in the spotlight, it would only make sense that their paths should cross, and that's exactly what happened just a few days ago on a recent episode of Giel Beelen's Dutch radio show. With Royal Blood in-studio, the two musicians took a crack at covering Del Rey's 'West Coast' -- and they did a pretty freakin' good job at it. Check out their performance in the video above.
