Looking for a song to add to your Fourth of July party playlist? Lana Del Rey’s next single may be the new go-to Independence Day anthem. Sorry, Miley! Your “Party in the USA” is over.
Del Rey will release her new single, “National Anthem,” in July, just in time for that yearly barbecue. This will be the polarizing artist’s fourth single from her debut album, Born To Die, which was released earlier this year. The album debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard charts, and since its release, Born to Die has sold two million copies globally.
The “Video Games” singer is currently filming the video for “National Anthem,” and if it’s anything like her other videos, we know three things will be involved: American flags, live animals and her tattooed male model friend Bradley Soileau.
Though earlier reports suggested Del Rey was canceling her North American tour after her poor “Saturday Night Live” showing, her management claimed such a tour was never planned. They plan to launch a proper North American tour for Del Rey in October.
