Lana Del Rey records classic cover for Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark soundtrack

Lana Del Rey has recorded a cover of Donovan’s Season of the Witch for upcoming horror movie Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark.
The Born to Die hitmaker contributed her version of the 1966 track for the film, which follows a group of teenagers who must face their fears in order to save their lives.
Debuting the cover alongside a trailer for the flick on social media, the star wrote: “Ooooh (ghost emoji) I’m really excited for you to see this amazing movie! SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK @scarystoriesmovie And I’ve got a new spooky cover in there for ya of Season Of The Witch It’s in theaters this Friday produced by Guillermo del Toro and Director, Andre Ovredal!!! Song produced by Jack Antonoff.”
In a statement, Trollhunter filmmaker Andre Ovredal, who is producing the film, gushed over the 34-year-old singer.
“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,” he said. “She is a great artist and has been an amazing partner with us in this adventure. It is an honour for me to have met her.”
The singer will also join del Toro when he is honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame star on Wednesday.
Del Rey has recorded songs for a number of movie soundtracks, including Once Upon a Dream for Maleficent, I Can Fly for Big Eyes, and Young and Beautiful for The Great Gatsby.
