Watch Elle Fanning Cover Robyn for Upcoming Pop Musical 'Teen Spirit'

"Dancing On My Own" is hard to nail down, but here we are.

If you’ve ever loved pop music, then you’re probably already excited for the upcoming Elle Fanning film Teen Spirit.

The film centers around Violet Valenski (Fanning), a shy teenager who enters a singing competition with the dream of escaping from her shitty life.

Teen Spirit premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last year, and critics have already been praising its use of existing pop music over originals, calling it a true celebration of the genre.

One of the major songs Fanning covers in the movie is Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own,” which every gay across the world undoubtedly knows by heart at this point. (And if for some reason you don’t, maybe you saw this excellent subway dance party to it last week.)

In anticipation for the film’s April 5th debut, a full version of the cover has been released on YouTube, complete with clips from the film, naturally.

 

 

Fanning had previously told Billboard that the idea of singing existing songs had made her quite nervous.

“They’re covers of big pop songs, so I was really scared to get those wrong because people love them so much and also hear them on the radio all the time,” she said. “So I wanted to not butcher them, basically.”

If she did as good a job with the other songs as she did with the “Dancing On My Own” cover above, then Fanning definitely has nothing to worry about.
