Sublime’s summertime vibes song “Doin’ Time” came out 23 years ago. Wow. Time flies right.
A new documentary about Sublime debuted at the Tribeca Film festival back in April. The movie follows rise of Sublime right to edge of stardom before singer Bradley Nowell’s death in 1996, Then the subsequent breakdown of the group.
The film features a cover of their song “Doin’ Time” by Lana Del Rey. Del Rey’s take has a breezy swing and her signature airy, effortless vocals.
I like the modern, subversion of the original. Gives you another reflection of the song depending on your mood.
