Bill Callahan Shares New Track ‘Protest Song’

    Each week, Bill Callahan shares a new song from his upcoming album, Gold Record, due out on September 4 via Drag City. Today, the singer-songwriter has unveiled a spare, blues-tinged track called ‘Protest Song’, indicating a slight left turn from his previous singles. Check it out below.

    “The other night after a hard day of work,” Callahan begins, “I thought I’d unwind and look at television/ Late-night show where a singer came on to sing/ Some kind of protest song.”

    ‘Protest Song’ follows the previously released ‘Pigeons’, ‘Another Song’, and ’35’. Gold Record marks the singer-songwriter’s seventh studio album under his own name, following 2019’s critically acclaimed Shepherd in a Sheepskin Vest.
