"Cry Me a River" is a popular torch song written by Arthur Hamilton for Ella Fitzgerald in 1953 made famous by Julie London's rendition in 1955. Despite the song's intentions to be sang by Fitzgerald, it wasn't until 1961 that she recorded it. Other notable artists to record the song include Shirley Bassey, Frank Sinatra Jr. and Michael Bublé.
An unreleased cover of the song by Lana Del Rey leaked on August 6, 2015. ID3 tags in the original leaked file suggest it was recorded in 2011. Del Rey's version of the song uses the same instrumental from Michael Bublé's rendition.
