On the surface, Britney Spears and Twin Peaks might not appear to share much in common. The former made her name as a bubbly teen pop star, while the latter has always enjoyed a foggier aesthetic and (only slightly) more cult-like following. But the two pair together much better than one might expect, perhaps because they both offered a peek into the darker side of teen glamor. This mashup from Conrad Tao deftly combines Spears’ forlorn 2003 hit “Everytime” with Twin Peaks’ synth-dirge of a theme song. The haunting, ethereal result will lead you to a place both wonderful and strange—where it will be no easier to wait for the return of Twin Peaks in 2017.
