Thanks! Very political (especially by FBF's standards).

In all fairness, the article states that the song was recorded before the pandemic took hold.

It was likely the Residents idea to position the video as anti-Trump propaganda long after FBF made his contribution to the recording.

I would like to think they ran their plan by him first for approval just to be decent fellows (since he will of course be associated with whatever fallout or negative reaction they may receive), but it could very well be that they were not technically obliged to do so.

This is not to say that I think FBF would disagree with the thrust of the video's implications, but more an acknowledgement that, as has been stated above, he usually is more circumspect and guarded about publicly expressing any overtly political opinions, especially in conjunction with his songs and/or recordings.

BF has been very vocal on Twitter about Trump and his mishandling of the crisis.

In any case nice song.

I can't say that I love the song on the first listen, nothing to do with the subject matter. But the man can still belt. Glad to see it happened.

Love it.

A primitive (in the good sense of the word) statement. Also, in terms of content/message more layered and subtle than a first listen might suggests.

Wow, what a great surprise to hear this. Anyone else think this could very easily fit onto the Golem?
