Rizzle Kicks cover Lana Del Rey's 'Summertime Sadness' - watch

The duo performed the song for BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge

Rizzle Kicks have covered Lana Del Rey's 'Summertime Sadness'.

Click above to watch the Brighton hip-hop act perform their take on the track, which originally featured on Del Rey's 2012 debut album 'Born To Die'. Rizzle Kicks played the song in the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge earlier today (September 6).

Rizzle Kicks released their second album earlier this week. The Wire actor Dominic West appears on two tracks on 'Roaring 20s', which is the follow up to their 2011 debut 'Stereo-Typical'. In a recent interview with The Sun about how their love of TV show The Wire led in the direction of the English actor, the band's Jordan Stephens said: "When we'd finished watching The Wire it was almost like losing a close friend. Being able to have the star of the show on our record was definitely one of those 'pinch myself' moments."

The duo's producer Ant Whiting was a close friend of the actor, who also starred in BBC2 drama The Hour, and was able to get him into the studio to record vocal parts for the songs 'That's Classic' and 'Put Your Two's Up'. The latter is produced by Fatboy Slim and sees West calling people to the dancefloor, his speech getting progressively more slurred as the track rolls on.
