John Grant has shared a new video for ‘The Only Baby’ his response to Trump and the current extremism sweeping American politics.
Having recorded the song last summer, Grant wanted to share his outrage at the disturbing political situation in America Which culiminated in the storming of the Capitol building in Washington a fortnight ago, because “it seemed like a good time“.
He gave the following statement alongside the video here:
“I feel so much rage and yes, hatred towards the gaslighters, the bullies, the narcissists, the sociopaths and psychopaths, the Christian Fascist Right and of course T**** and all those who enable him and continue to do so all in the name of Jesus and/or Hitler. I know I have to figure out a way to stay calm and continue to resist the onslaught of lies without being dissolved from the inside out by my own rage and the hatred I feel towards these people who scream at the top of their lungs that we do not hear what we hear or see what we see.”
The track is a lengthy 9:38, check out the lyric video assembled by Casey Raymond, below.
