ROBYN HITCHCOCK – ” The President ” (2020 version)

Today I released an updated version of my song “The President”. It’s a rewrite of a song I wrote in 1986, updated to reflect the horror of the current administration.
It is available now as a download and for streaming on Bandcamp and we are taking orders for a limited edition vinyl release as well.

I recorded this version at home during lockdown, with Emma Swift in the co-producer’s chair, as well as Patrick Sansone flying the Mellotron, the triangle and two judiciously overdubbed 12 string guitars. The B-side:  “The Cross, The Dollar And The Gun” will be released later this month.
You can watch the music video, art directed by Emma Swift below.
Love on ye,

Hey folks, I’ve re-written “The President” (originally from 1986) to try to catch the horror of the current one: it’s my new single on Tiny Ghost Records. Here’s the video, created by Emma Swift

Available now for pre-order as limited edition red vinyl 7 inch, and also as a digital download at Bandcamp:
