It is a celebration as Lana Del Rey returns with the cover of the evergreen song of Sublime titled “Doin’ Time.” This latest outing is a cover of ska-punk band, Sublime’s massive smash hit effort which dropped to critical acclaim on the 30th of July, 1996.
Only thing is Lana Del Rey has now chosen to jump on the cover of the evergreen classic for a Sublime documentary which premiered recently at the Tribeca Film Festival. With the golden and celestial vocals as well as the effortless delivery of the most heart-wrenching pieces of content so personal and deep, many fans have regarded Lana Del Rey as a genre of her own.
In fact, some of have said you just do not listen to the “Video Games” mastermind; but only get to experience her – an assertion we wouldn’t even argue about. Well, summer is just around the corner and what is the season without a piece of vibe from Lana Del Ray whose real name is Elizabeth Woolridge Grant. Most music lovers will never forget the monstrous “Summertime Sadness.”
In the end, even Sublime must be proud of this latest rendition and even though the singer delves away from the original beats to birth a brand new burst, you just cannot deny the angelic influences she makes of the number.
