Listen: Lana Del Rey covers 'Once Upon a Dream' for 'Maleficent' soundtrack

Indie pop singer Lana Del Rey released her cover of "Once Upon a Dream" on Sunday. She takes on the Disney classic for the new movie "Maleficent" starring Angelina Jolie.

Jolie reportedly handpicked Del Rey to sing "Once Upon a Dream" for the "Maleficent" soundtrack. Lana makes the classic track even more enchanting with her gloomy take. "You'll love me at once they way you did once upon a dream," she sings. Princess Aurora and Prince Phillip's theme song is put in the right hands. Like her Grammy-nominated single "Young and Beautiful" from "The Great Gatsby" soundtrack, an orchestral background and Del Rey's vintage vocals prove to be a magical combination on "Once Upon a Dream."

"Once Upon a Dream" is now available as a free download on Google Play. Disney's "Maleficent" will be released to theaters on May 30. Lana's new album "Ultraviolence" is set to drop later this year.
