“National Anthem” and “This Is What Makes Us Girls,” two more tracks from Lana Del Rey’s forthcoming debut Born To Die, leaked online. The former’s not a Radiohead cover, so we can all breathe easy. Instead, it joins “Off To The Races” on the list of LDR songs with big, awkward quasi-rap beats. Universal Music Group has been jerking any and all versions of the track from YouTube, but you can listen to both at

Born To Die is out 1/30 on Interscope (tracklist below). And if you’re looking for further reasons to hate Del Rey, please note that she’s recently signed a contract with Next Modelling Agency, which means she is now a colleague of fellow Next client Jessie J.
