Watch Lana Del Rey’s Video Selfie With Her Boyfriend ‘Summer Wine’
Gangster Nancy Sinatra covers actual Nancy Sinatra
With Great Gatsby soundtrack cuts slowly trickling onto the web, a cover of “Summer Wine,” Nancy Sinatra’s 1967 duet with songwriter Lee Hazlewood, was the least likely thing Lana Del Rey would release right now. And yet, here we are. Barrie-James O’Neill, singer for Scottish alt-folk band Kassidy and LDR’s IRL boyfriend, in true Sonny & Cher fashion, steps in alongside the Paradise chanteuse, and together the two breezily remake the song with handheld footage of crashing Santa Monica waves and canoodling. Cute.
“Summer Wine” follows Del Rey’s reverently reserved cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Chelsea Hotel No. 2″ last month.
