Lana Del Rey shares cover of ‘You Must Love Me’

Lana Del Rey has shared a new cover of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s ‘You Must Love Me’ from the movie and musical Evita.

The track, taken from Unmasked: The Platinum Collection, is a compilation to celebrate’s Webber’s upcoming 70th birthday. “Andrew Lloyd Webber has been one of my primary inspirations in music, so to do a cover of one of his songs is a dream,” said Del Rey.

“I especially love this particular song, You Must Love Me, because of how unique the melody is. I’ve been incredibly inspired by all of Andrew’s work from Phantom of the Opera to Evita.”

Speaking of her cover, Webber added: “Lana Del Rey sings beautifully, and with a haunting echo, over the simple piano accompaniment.

“Singer and song express neediness, devotion, bravery and command, all at once, a clever, seemingly effortless trick of Rice’s syntax.”
