“National Anthem”

    Universal’s lawyers have been working overtime to remove all traces of a new leak from Lana del Rey’s Born to Die, without much success. The song is titled “National Anthem,” which continues her fascination with trip-hop style beats and anthemic pop structure. This isn’t likely to sway anyone unconvinced by del Rey, especially as she’s part-rapping this song in the spaces between the “I’m your national anthem” chorus. This leak might not please her label bosses, but it’s really just stoking the fires of interest while we wait for Born to Die to emerge at the end of the month.
