There's a reason they call her the gangster Nancy Sinatra, after all!
Though Lana Del Rey isn't as frequently likened to the '60s songstress as she was during her early days, the "Born to Die" singer returned to her "roots" with a cover of Sinatra's "Summer Wine," a duet recorded with Lee Hazelwood in 1967.
For Lana's version, she enlisted boyfriend Barrie-James O'Neill of the Scottish band Kassidy (who recently toured joined Lana on her Paradise tour in Europe).
And to accompany their cover, the duo released this very cute homemade video, mostly composed of shots of Lana vamping it up on the beach and the twosome cuddling as they serenade each other. Typical Lana, being all perfect and whatnot.
For reference, here is Sinatra and Hazelwood's original version of the song:
This is the second cover that Lana has surprised fans with in the past few weeks, following a version of Leonard Cohen's "Chelsea Hotel No. 2," and on her tour she performs Nirvana's "Heart-Shaped Box" and Bob Dylan's "Knockin' On Heaven's Door."
Which means, it's about high time Lana put out an official album of all her covers. And we have a few suggestions for classic and contemporary songs we'd like to see her put her spin on:
Bon Iver, "Skinny Love"
Britney Spears, "...Baby One More Time"
Grace Potter, "Paris (Ooh La La)"
Taylor Swift , "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together"
That last one just because we think it would be funny.
And that brainstorm is what we came up with in 25 seconds!
Hit us up if you want us to exec produce this project, Lana, we can certainly find some time to pencil you in.
