LISTEN: New Lana Del Rey Track Addresses Mass Shootings

August 6, 2019

Lana Del Rey is responding to recent mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio with a new song called "Looking for America."

She announced the single over Instagram, Monday. She says it came together in 48 hours with  the help of producer Jack Antonoff. The song won't appear on Del Rey's upcoming album, Norman Fucking Rockwell, set to release August 30.

Check out the short video below:

Hi folks came back early from Montecito with my brother this morning and asked Jack Antonoff to come into town because I had a song on my mind that I wanted to write. Now I know I’m not a politician and I’m not trying to be so excuse me for having an opinion- but in light of all of the mass shootings and the back to back shootings in the last couple of days which really affected me on a cellular level I just wanted to post this video that our engineer Laura took 20 minutes ago. I hope you like it. I’m singing love to the choruses I recorded this morning. I’m going to call it ‘Looking for America ‘ @jackantonoff @sharp_stick
