ANOHNI Shares New Song ‘R.N.C. 2020’

    ANOHNI has shared a new track called ‘R.N.C. 2020’, a protest song inspired by last week’s Republican National Convention. Listen to it below.

    “What’s really happening?” the artist wrote in a statement to The Guardian. “Toxic levels of corruption and collusion are devouring the US. Christian extremists want to turn the country into a religious state straight out of The Handmaid’s Tale.” About the track in particular, she said: “The sound of this track ‘R.N.C. 2020′ is pretty rough. The loop is from a concert I did at a club in New York City in my early 20s. So that’s me screaming in the past… for the present. Can you visualize a different path forward? We All have to focus on this now, with everything we’ve got.”

    Earlier this month, ANOHNI shared her take on Bob Dylan’s ‘It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue’ as well as Nina Simone’s ‘Be My Husband’. Her last album was 2016’s Hopelessness.
