Listen to Swedish singer MIYNT's stylistic Lana-esque cover of "Baby One More Time".

Lana Del Rey's music style is famous for having a grand, sweeping moodiness to it (which has made it a great fit for movie trailers, apparently); but as we know from Sia's rendition of "California Dreamin'", we get some amazing results.when other artists emulate that style.

Indie Swedish vocalist MIYNT released a cover of Britney Spears' breakout single "Baby One More Time" this week; and her stripped-back, haunting acoustic version has that same ethereal quality that wouldn't sound out of place in a Southern Gothic drama or a post-apocalyptic war movie. Both are a bit of a wild contrast from the 1999 bubblegum-schoolgirl aesthetic, but that's definitely a good thing. Check it out below.
