Really interested to hear how she will perform this, considering the original orchestration and vocal range. :excited:

Isn’t summertime similar in melody and lyrics to Doin Time? 

Doin Time samples the opening vocal melody and lyrics of Summertime.


For anyone not aware, it's actually originally from an opera called Porgy and Bess.

i love that she's exploring her vocal potencial these times :wub: also i'm a little worried about the production considering how fast they've done it..

sometimes I think Lana does some of her best stuff when it’s a faster process and she doesn’t have too much time to think

lana using a Billie Holiday-esque trash selfie cover for an original song from her highly anticipated NFR followup but using a high budget serve for a cover song taken from a lowkey release is just.... smh
