Lana Del Rey Will Donate Proceeds From ‘Welcome To America’ To Victims Of The Mass Shootings

After the two mass shootings in the United States over last weekend, Lana Del Rey has penned a new song inspired by the tragedy.

“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,” the singer wrote on Instagram along with a video of the haunting song right after the tragedy.

On Friday, Del Rey released the full song. In the song called “Looking For America” Del Rey sings “watch the children in the park/used to only worry about them after dark/I’m still looking for my own version of America/one without the guns where the flag can freely fly/no bombs in the sky/only fireworks and you and I.”

She also revealed that all proceeds from “Looking For America” will go to the Gilroy Garlic Festival Victims Relief Fund, El Paso Community Relief Fund and Dayton Foundation.

The song arrives just ahead of her album Norman F**king Rockwell which comes out later this month.
