Lana Del Rey shares new single 'Summertime The Gershwin Version'

Having spent the last few months sporadically sharing new singles, Lana Del Rey has now returned with something very special.

The new single 'Summertime The Gershwin Version' is a cover of the George Gershwin classic 'Summertime', and has been released to raise funds and awareness for the New York Philharmonic and the Los Angeles Philharmonic orchestras.

Speaking about the release, Chief Executive Officer of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Chad Smith said, “We’re incredibly grateful for Lana Del Rey’s support and for her drawing attention to the challenges arts organizations have faced over the past several months. The performing arts have been hit especially hard by the pandemic, but we look forward to the day when the orchestra and artists, including Lana, will be able return to our stages again. In the meantime, we are extraordinarily thankful for her support and the many, many other donors who have stepped forward during this difficult time.”

While New York Philharmonic President & CEO, Deborah Borda said, “What a wonderful gift from Lana Del Rey! It’s particularly poetic, since the song is by George Gershwin — the legendary composer-pianist whose music the New York Philharmonic has premiered and with whom we performed. We are most grateful to Lana, as we are to all who are supporting us during a crisis faced by all performing arts organisations.”
