Dua Lipa releases powerful protest anthem 'Swan Song', shares music video

The Robert Rodriguez-directed, James Cameron-produced cyberpunk action film Alita: Battle Angel is now showing in cinemas. Today, Dua Lipa, one of the biggest and most buzzing names in contemporary pop music, shared 'Swan Song', a seething, politically charged, maximal electro-pop tune off its OST, and its accompanying Floria Sigismondi-directed music video.

Befitting the scale and sweep of its source material, everything about the video is blockbuster-sized. In what is practically a movie in its own right, Dua Lipa and a ragtag group of dancers forage for parts in a dystopian wasteland until they're attacked by a gargantuan enemy robot. As she escapes with her crew, Dua encounters Alita and inherits her power and strength to stand up to the oppressor – "I won't stay quiet, I won't stay quiet / 'Cause staying silent's the same as dying / I won't stay quiet".
