Elle Fanning Covers Robyn's 'Dancing On My Own' For 'Teen Spirit': Watch
Interscope Records has released a clip of Elle Fanning covering Robyn’s “Dancing on My Own” as Violet Valenski, the protagonist in the upcoming musical drama, Teen Spirit.
The three-minute-long video not only gives us a taste of Fanning’s skilled singing chops, but also reveals more scenes of the film (due out on April 5), which follows an introverted teen who is determined to win a singing competition to escape her dreary home life.
Fanning covers the 2010 dance-pop hit with husky vocals, singing over a montage of clips showing Violet’s dissatisfying home life and journey in the competition.
In an interview with Billboard, Fanning said that it’s always been her dream to do a musical, since people don’t know she can sing. She also cited Robyn, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift and Kanye West as inspirations while she studied pop stars' performances for the role.
“The way they perform is so polished and particular,” Fanning said. “Also my character Violet looks up to all those pop idols so that's who she would be watching and trying emulate.”
