Lana Del Rey is teasing a new song entitled "Looking For America," which the pop artist said she penned in response to the recent spate of deadly mass shootings.
"I'm still looking for my own version of America / One without the gun, where the flag can freely fly / No bombs in the sky / Only fireworks when you and I collide / It's just a dream I had in mind," she sings as producer Jack Antonoff strums a guitar, in a clip Del Rey posted on Instagram.
"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," the 34-year-old American singer wrote in her post's caption.
