Over the Christmas break her ‘album?’ track ‘National Anthem’ leaked onto the internet with more of a summery flourish and bounding beat than before listen to the audio below. Its glamourous melodies drip with her dissection of the seedy side of the Hollywood myth, fame and materialism(“money is the anthem of success”),reaffirming the idea that Lana will be this year’s sophisticated pop star success story, what do you make of it?!
