Ahead of her next album ‘Norman Fucking Rockwell’, which is set to come out later this year, Lana Del Rey has now released the full version of her take on ‘Doin’ Time’, which featured on Sublime’s self-titled 1996 third album.

As Lana herself has observed (“Summertime Sadness”), summer is a uniquely despondent month. The days are hazy, lazy, and long; the sun never sets, it’s hot, it’s buggy. When you are a kid, you feel sad because you know summer will eventually be over and school will return; and when you’re an adult, you probably regret working too much and not taking advantage of the nice weather. Since summer always has a sting to it, who better to cover Sublime’s 1996 “Doin’ Time” than the dreamy, steamy Del Ray? We’re still waiting with baited breath on her full-length Norman Fucking Rockwell, but in the meantime, to hear Lana’s langorous iteration of “summertime and the livin’s easy” is a real treat.
