Alice Smith
I Put a Spell on You

As part of Sessions, a new spin-off of Gagosian Premieres, Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Alice Smith delivers an unforgettable interpretation of the Screamin’ Jay Hawkins classic “I Put a Spell on You” (1956) inside the exhibition Social Works II at Gagosian, Grosvenor Hill, London. Hawkins’s song was famously covered by Nina Simone in 1965 and has since been performed and recorded by many other artists, from Bette Midler to Marilyn Manson. In 2015, Smith’s haunting rendition was featured on the album Nina Revisited... A Tribute to Nina Simone.


Sessions is a spin-off of Gagosian Premieres featuring short-form videos of performances with music, dance, and poetry by some of today’s most acclaimed creative voices. Sessions can be newly commissioned performances or outtakes from Premieres episodes.
