STREAM: John Mayer – Video Games (Lana Del Rey Cover)

John Mayer - 2012

John Mayer may have taken a break from touring, but that has not stopped the young rock legend from taking a shot at Lana Del Rey’s breakthrough hit.

finding its way online last night void of all the synth found in the original version, Mayer’s take on “Video Games” feels like the sad, sad tale of woe sang by someone riding across the Wild West at sunset. The track has no vocals, but that will not stop it from haunting you. Hear what I mean, after the jump.

No word on whether or not Mayer plans to do more covers like this, but I certainly would not mind. What did you think of Mayer’s cover?
