Lindsay Lohan has released the first music video for her new song “Xanax”.
The actress posted the full-length track on social media. She captioned the video, post, “This video is a compilation of vignettes of life. Family, love, the process of moving forward and letting go of the past. To live and be happy, free of fear. Just to be grateful and open our eyes to our opportunities instead of numbing the mind.”
In the video, Lohan uses footage of her brother Cody skateboarding followed by a cameo of her other brother Michael Jr.
She then uses footage of her during a charity event overseas. The video transitions to Lohan doing sultry poses in front of a mirror. She is then seen learning dance moves with a choreographer.
Last month, The Blast obtained an exclusive preview of the song and the lyrics are closely related to Lohan's own personal life. She sings about living out in Los Angeles and chasing someone that is bad for her. Lilo compares the ex to the anti-anxiety medicine.
The track starts off “I don’t like the parties in LA, I go home. In a bad mood, pass out, wake up alone. Just to do it all over again. Looking for you.
“Only one reason I came here. Too many people, I can’t hear. Damn, I got here at 10. Now it’s 4am."
The track continues, “I can’t be in this club. It’s too crowded and I’m fu**ed. Ain't nobody here for love. Ain’t nobody care bout us.”
“I got social anxiety, but you’re like Xanax to me. Social anxiety when you kiss me, I can’t breathe.”
"I try to stay away from you, but you get me high. Only person in this town that I like. Guess I can take one more trip for the night. Just for the night.”
Sources close to Lohan tell The Blast, Lilo felt the lyrics were “truthful” to her “life experience”.
We’re told she feels the song is about what a bad boyfriend and toxic friends can do to someone, such as distracting them like drugs can do.
Sources say Lohan wanted the song to express how you don’t have to numb yourself and only you control your life.
Lohan has been teasing new music for months, posting on social media photos of her in the studio.
She posted a photo from inside Republic Records captioned,“@republicrecords@casablancarecords".
"Xanax" is in the same vein as Lohan's classic hit songs. Lohan has released two studio albums 2004’s ‘Speak’ and 2005’s “A Little More Personal (Raw)”. "Speak" was certified Platinum (selling over a million copies) and her follow-up went Gold (selling over 500,000 copies).She broke out in music with the song "Rumors", where she sang about wanting everyone to back up.
Her next massive hit was “Confessions of a Broken Heart (Daughter to Father), which detailed her complicated relationship with her father.
The last music we heard from her was 2008’s “Bossy”, which was produced by Ne-Yo.
