Sometimes a revolution can happen overnight, but a renaissance takes time. It took 4 centuries for Europe to rid itself of the raw brutality of the Middle Ages before it was born anew as the western cradle of art, culture, and giant smoked turkey legs. You can’t rush a renaissance. We can’t expect to wake up one fine morning to find the Lohanaissance upon us! It would blow our unsophisticated, feeble minds. Lindsay Lohan is taking her time, for us. That’s why she’s only shared a scant snippet of her latest single, Xanax, with us at this time. Lindsay’s smoked turkey legs can wait!
According to Entertainment Tonight:
The teaser for the song, “Xanax” was premiered on The Kris Fade Show on Virgin Radio Dubai, and as Fade explained, the tune is “about anxiety and pressure and taking care of yourself.”
The new Lindsay is all about self-care. You’ll remember that the last clip she dropped featured the line “I used to blame me when shit got crazy”. Now it’s Xanax’s turn to bear the brunt of her blame.
The tune itself, which is “set to be released very, very soon,” is a highly produced mid-tempo club beat with a catchy hook. Although from the short snippet fans have heard — which the host says was taken from the middle of the song — it’s hard to tell exactly what story the lyrics will tell when the song drops in full.
I don’t know what else I can add that will adequately prepare you for the dawn of the Lohanaissance. Drink some water maybe? It’s never a bad idea to hydrate before embarking on a journey of the mind, body and soul.

So, a couple of questions. This song is metaphorical? Is the “you” a person who makes her feel like she’s popped a Xannie, or is she talking to the Xannie like it’s a person? I feel like, though it was only 20 seconds, Lindsay got a little mixed up herself. The only thing we know for sure it that she got there at 10. Unless that’s a metaphor too. Hmmm. But look at me expecting turkey legs when we’re still at the stage of the Lohanaissance where Lindsay, despite having run a beach club for some time, first discovers sea water is salty.
I know I said renaissances take time, but honestly, “very, very soon” can’t come soon enough for me!
