The sultry singer takes on the late Bradley Nowell’s vocals for the track set to feature in the upcoming documentary Sublime.
Having previously teased the cover online, Lana Del Rey has released a haunting version of the ‘90s trio Sublime’s ‘Doin’ Time’. Produced by Andrew Watt, the single is set to feature on the upcoming documentary Sublime, which reflects on the California band’s spectacular success and their eventual fall due to the death of frontman Bradley Nowell.
Speaking on the track, Lana Del Rey has said, “Not a day goes by that I don’t listen to at least one Sublime song. They epitomized the SoCal vibe and made a genre and sound totally their own.” The singer’s respect and appreciation for the group is evident in her handling of the track, keeping to the original while injecting her signature hazy, sultry sound.
Bud Gough of Sublime spoke on his appreciation for the singer, stating that “We are so excited to be collaborating with Lana on this, the smoky, sexy, iconic sound of her voice breathes new life into one of our favourite singles.”
The documentary premiered back in April at New York’s Tribeca Film Festival.
