Pop star Lana del Rey has released a new song calledl “Looking for America.” She’s donating all proceeds to shooting victims and familes from El Paso, Dayton, and Gilroy. The organizations are Gilroy Garlic Festival Victims Relief Fund, the Dayton Foundation, and the El Paso Community Foundation.
She wrote on Instagram: “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”
This is not a song previously announced for Lana’s “Norman F—ing Rockwell” album. Maybe it will be added. Unclear. But “Looking for America” is already number 16 on iTunes.
