Anti-Lullaby

  • Lyrics
  • Karen O recorded this sparse, acoustic ballad for the soundtrack of the Amazon Prime drama series, Hanna. The show stars Saiorse Ronan in the lead role.

    Do not sleep
    She waits for you to sleep
    My breath, you breathe
    It will carry you


    The haunting, stripped-back song echoes Hanna's plot, which follows the story of a young girl who is relentlessly pursued by a CIA agent.
