Lana Del Rey is on the 'Scary Stories To Tell in the Dark' soundtrack

Lana Del Rey just recorded a cover of Scottish singer Donovan's 'Season of the Witch' for the upcoming horror movie 'Scary Stories To Tell in the Dark.' We're excited to hear how Lana pulls this off. 

The horror film follows the story of a group of teenagers who must face their fears in order to save their lives, and will be released tomorrow on the big screen. 

The Born to Die hitmaker debuted the cover on her social media, along with the trailer that will truly bring chills up your spine. 

The star wrote: "Ooooh. 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."

The horror film was directed by Andre Ovredal, and the filmmaker gushed over Lana in a statement. He said: "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.

"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," he added. 

Del Rey has recorded songs for a number of movie soundtracks already, including Once Upon a Dream for Maleficent, I Can Fly for Big Eyes, and Young and Beautiful for The Great Gatsby, so she'll definitely slay this one too.
