Anti-Lullaby

Songfacts®:

  • Karen O recorded this sparse, acoustic ballad for the soundtrack of the Amazon Prime drama series Hanna. The show stars Esme Creed-Miles 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.
