Nirvana's track "Heart Shaped Box" was covered by Lana Del Rey during a recent performance in Australia. The show took place at the Enmore Theatre in Sydney on July 26, and videos of the cover are currently circulating the web.
"Heart Shaped Box" was originally released as the lead single from Nirvana's third studio LP, In Utero, and hit the radio waves in August of 1993.
The receptive crowd at the Enmore swooned in recognition of the song, which Del Rey softened with her signature retro style.
Her band trades bashing drums and crunchy guitars for uplifting strings and guitars with a reverb-laden twang. Del Rey previously opened up on her love for the track in a radio interview:
"When I was 11, I saw Kurt Cobain singing 'Heart Shaped Box' on MTV and it really stopped me dead in my tracks. I thought he was the most beautiful person I had ever seen. Even at a young age, I really related to his sadness."
