Lana Del Rey Laments US Mass Shootings On ‘Looking For America’

Written By Sam Murphy on 08/09/2019

Lana Del Rey has released a new, non-album track just weeks before the release of Norman Fucking Rockwell.

Following the recent shootings in El Paso and Dayton, Del Rey penned a new song Looking For America and quickly got producer Jack Antonoff into the studio to record it.

It’s a mournful ballad that features Del Rey more present than ever singing, “I’m still looking for my own version of America, one without the gun.”

Del Rey is no stranger to quick-fire releases. She reflected on the tensions between the US and North Korea in 2017, returning home from Coachella to pen Coachella – Woodstock In My Mind.

Norman Fucking Rockwell will drop 30th August.
