Lana Del Rey covers Donovan’s ‘Season of the Witch’ for new film trailer

The song was recorded for Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, a new film produced by Guillermo del Toro – she’ll also present the filmmaker with his own Hollywood Walk of Fame star

Lana Del Rey has covered Donovan’s 1966 classic “Season of the Witch” for the trailer of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, a new film directed by André Øvredal and produced by Guillermo del Toro

“I have admired Lana’s music for a while now and felt in my gut that she would run with ‘Season of the Witch’ – that she would use her alchemy to transform it,” del Toro said in a statement. “She is a great artist and has been an amazing partner with us in this adventure. It is an honor for me to have met her.”

Del Rey isn’t just contributing a song to the film – she’s also set to award del Toro with his very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The ceremony is set to take place later today (August 6), with director JJ Abrams also set to speak.

LDR’s full version of “Season of the Witch” is due for release this Friday (August 9) to coincide with the release of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. Her new album, Norman Fucking Rockwell, is due out August 30.
