Fans Unearth Nicholas Galitzine’s Lana Del Rey Cover Amidst ‘Red, White & Royal Blue’ Hype

Nicholas Galitzine may be winning over movie fans in Bottoms and Amazon’s Red, White & Royal Blue, but the British actor has some seriously impressive singing chops as well, as seen in an old YouTube video recently unearthed by fans.

In the video, posted to YouTube three years ago, Galitzine performs a cover of Lana Del Ray’s 2012 hit, “Summertime Sadness.” Strumming an acoustic guitar and sitting in what appears to be a bedroom, the multi-talented star shows off his seductive voice as he sings — and strums — the first verse and chorus of Del Ray’s song.
