Lana Del Rey covers Nancy & Lee’s ‘Summer Wine’ with Kassidy boyfriend – watch

The singer and her lover join forces for their version of the iconic Lee Hazlewood penned track

Lana Del Rey has covered Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood‘s 1967 track ‘Summer Wine’.

Del Rey has joined forces with her boyfriend Barrie-James O’Neill of Scottish rockers Kassidy to record the song. She has released a grainy DIY video of the loved-up, photogenic couple hanging out at the beach and on a picturesque balcony in Los Angeles singing the track.

Del Rey has revealed that her forthcoming second album will be a more “spiritual” affair.

The ‘Video Games’ singer, who now lives in the UK, has been writing songs for the follow-up to her 2012 debut album ‘Born To Die’ in Santa Monica, and has said she now knows what her new record will sound like – stripped down but still cinematic and dark, apparently.

She told BBC Radio 1 Newsbeat that her songwriting has “moved on to a more spiritual place lyrically”.

She said: “It’s a little more stripped down but still cinematic and dark. I’ve been working on it really slowly but I love everything I’ve done. I’ve been writing in Santa Monica and I know what the record sounds like. Musically, I’ve worked with the same three guys. Now I just have to finish it.”
