"Foreign Car" is taken from Lu's debut album, Blood, out now on Columbia Records-listen here.Blood is receiving widespread acclaim with Hypebeast praising, "Nothing short of a menacing vision...the project revels in a sonic appetite that's bright with ideas and overflowing with vivid soundscapes," while The Wall Street Journal praises, "a strong individual vision with plenty of confidence."

Lu recently performed Arizona's FORM Festival where she debuted the Skrillex remix of "Due West" live-listen here. She also performed special shows in Japan and Australia, including Sydney's Vivid Festival where Lu scored the Lighting of the Sails with a film by director Andrew Thomas Huang.
