Lana Del Rey has covered Daniel Johnston’s “Some Things Last a Long Time” for a short film being made about Johnston titled Hi How Are You Daniel Johnston, focusing on an “aging musician coming to terms with the dreams of yesteryear.” It has a pretty interesting concept as the film features “an intimate interview between Daniel and his younger self-addressing his most prolific and maddening era,” NME reports.

Step inside Daniel’s mind as he revisits life in 1983 amidst the creation of his seminal album Hi, How Are You. Reality and fiction blend as Daniel reveals bittersweet truths, tales of unrequited love and advice for artists everywhere.

The trailer for the upcoming short film has been released and features a snippet of Lana’s cover around the 1:02 mark. Listen to it below and read our feature on the 10 best Daniel Johnston songs here.
