We know how you feel right about now, over midway through this tumultuous year: another week, another.... oh hold up, wait - it's another Bill Callahan song! With 2020 chock-full of unprecedented, fundamental shifts, it's only fitting that modern day Bill C would tackle the Gold Record reveal with a similarly conceptual yet seriously positive approach!

So, here we meet again. Bill's latest offering, "Protest Song" details a singer-songwriter aghast at the unreality of the musical guest's cartoonish protest POV on late night TV, leading to a protest song of its own kind. An apex of faux-noir, brooding in bluesy atmosphere up to his armpits, Bill flies in a touch of Bowery Boys-style comedic elevation to let everyone in on the joke, through song. Listen to "Protest Song" and remember: Gold Record drops on September 4th!
