Lana’s Great Gatsby headliner “Young & Beautiful” fits the great Jesse Boykins’ dulcet & smooth tenor very very well. In arranging the cover, Boykins selects for buzzing synths, dancier drums and where LDR’s version was wistful/nostalgic, Jesse’s is pleading & immediate. Each change to the track is quite impactful making for a very strong reinvention. Listen.
