'National Anthem' now online

Add your comment »

Hipster-bothering controversially-lipped popstar Lana Del Rey has a new track online. Official or unofficial? Sneaky marketing trick to make her appear "edgy"? Who knows? Who cares? We're rather partial to Ms Del Rey's pop over here, so are pleased to present you with new song 'National Anthem' which, to these ears, sounds like All Saints. No bad thing. What do you reckon?

Kinda boring, and over produced. A bad mix. It's no Robyn.

Very 90s-sounding. Very "on trend". Nothing special.

Surprised at how truly bad this is. Video Games & Blue Jeans were great in their own way. We knew the mask was going to fall eventually. The production is horrible. She's stuck between Katy Perry and an older audience that (in the US) will not buy into her.

Yaaayyy! Another submission anthem.

I was prepared to dislike it intensely, but i'm afraid it's growing on me....too poppy in parts but also sometime haunting.... stuff the pop Lana ... stick with the sexy haunting stuff!
