Hear Barbra Streisand’s New Very Patriotic Single, “Lady Liberty,” From Her Forthcoming “Walls” Album


Here’s the second single from Barbra Streisand’s new album. “Lady Liberty” comes from “Walls,” which we’ll get next month.

“Lady Liberty” is VERY patriotic, with lyrics about 9-11, and references Emma Lazarus’s famous poem “The New Colossus.” I’m very proud because Emma lived on the same block I live on now, and she has a nice plaque commemorating her. If she were alive, I’d take over to the Waverly Inn and raise a glass.
