David Brewis has dropped a new School of Language album, and it’s all about Donald Trump

Field Music’s David Brewis has dropped a new School of Language album, and it’s all about Donald Trump.

’45' arrives today (Thursday, 30th May) ahead of Trump’s upcoming visit to the UK, with £1 from all direct sales split between Planned Parenthood and Alliance for Choice of Northern Ireland.

David says of the album: "For as long as I can remember I’ve been fascinated by US politics and that fascination became an obsession in the run up to the 2016 election. It really made me wonder as to whether I had any understanding of people whatsoever. It feels like Trump’s success has rendered in perfect detail every fault line in Western democracy - how profile beats policy, how corporate interests overwhelm the needs of ordinary people and how ethics and the rule of law are at the mercy of partisanship. To be honest, I could probably have written twice as many songs such is the wealth of scarcely believable material surrounding the Trump administration. It’s like King Lear populated by the cast of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Here in the UK, I feel far enough removed that I can turn my revulsion into satire. I don’t think I could do the same with Brexit. It’s too close."

Pick up your copy from Bandcamp, or the band’s online store.
