Let’s be honest: Lana Del Rey, Gucci model, lover of Los Angeles, emotional Cancer and maker of Norman Fucking Rockwell, is most likely a beautiful witch. So, it’s no surprise that the singer has decided to bless us with another cover, this time, lending her trademark retro dreamy vibes to Donovan’s “Season of the Witch.”
I mean, I know everyone’s busy talking about hot girl summer and all, but this one’s for the magic bitch.
The song, produced by Lana’s NFR collaborator, Jack Antonoff, was created for Guillermo Del Toro’s newest movie, based on the horrifying children’s book, Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark.
“I’m really excited for you to see this amazing movie,” she wrote. “And I’ve got a new spooky cover in there for ya of Season Of The Witch.”
BUT THAT’S NOT ALL.
Later, in the same day, Lana shared a brand new, heartfelt single, “Looking For America.”
Fresh off a road trip with her brother, and listening to news on the recent shootings in America, Lana was feeling all the feels (like a Cancer does). So, she called Antonoff and voila! A brand new song.
“Hi folks, came back early from Montecito with my brother this morning and asked Jack Antonoff to come into town because I had a song on my mind that I wanted to write,” she shared on Instagram. “Now I know I’m not a politician and I’m not trying to be so excuse me for having an opinion — but in light of all of the mass shootings and the back to back shootings in the last couple of days which really affected me on a cellular level I just wanted to post this video that our engineer Laura took 20 minutes ago. I hope you like it. I’m singing love to the choruses I recorded this morning. I’m going to call it ‘Looking for America.'”
