Thanks to Amazon, we’ve learned that Lana Del Rey will cover the Sleeping Beauty classic “Once Upon a Dream” for Disney’s upcoming live action film Maleficent.

The online retailer lists a January 26 release date for Lana Del Rey’s cover, which is the same night as the Grammy Awards. The song will cost $1.29. During the Grammys, Disney has scheduled a new sneak peek at Maleficent. See the stars aligning?

Update: The song has leaked online just hours before its official debut! Listen to Lana’s cover of “Once Upon a Dream” below (Thanks, Tumblr):

You can listen to the original “Once Upon a Dream” below thanks to this sing-along posted on YouTube:

Update: Below is the artwork for the single…


“Once Upon a Dream” doesn’t seem like the type of song Del Rey would usually cover, so we’re expecting a pretty interesting revamp.

Promotion for Maleficent, starring Angelina Jolie in the titular role, is clearly starting to ramp up. Over the weekend a new sneak peek debuted on Disney Channel and offered a lot of new footage.

The synopsis for the movie reads, “A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army threatens the harmony of the land. Maleficent rises to be the land’s fiercest protector, but she ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal—an act that begins to turn her pure heart to stone. Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces an epic battle with the invading king’s successor and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Maleficent realizes that Aurora holds the key to peace in the kingdom—and perhaps to Maleficent’s true happiness as well.”

Sleeping Beauty, Walt Disney Animation’s 16th film, was released in 1959.

Maleficent hits theaters May 30, 2014.

Thanks to Mike for the tip.

    Not sure about this . . . Lana Del Rey . . . Not my favorite. Maybe she will surprise us all with a great cover, but I don’t really have high hopes for it . . .

    Wow, my whole life I have thought the lyrics were “I waltzed with you” not “I walked with you.” Pahaha.
