Indie pop singer Lana Del Rey released her cover of "Once Upon a Dream" on Sunday. In the cover, 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 soundtrack. Del Rey 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 for download on Google Play. Disney's "Maleficent" will be released in theaters on May 30. Lana's new album, Ultraviolence, is set to drop later this year.

A 90-second trailer of "Maleficent" was also released today with Del Rey's take on "Once Upon a Dream" playing in the background. It can be viewed here.
