Lana Del Rey premiered “Looking For America” on her Instagram yesterday using footage recorded with Jack Antonoff (fun., Bleachers) just this past weekend.
I can’t recap the story behind this song and last weekend’s mass shootings any better than Lana herself. Watch, listen, read, and ponder.

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
