Cass McCombs Releases ‘Don’t (Just) Vote’ Single Featuring Bob Weir & Angel Olsen
“Don’t (Just) Vote” was produced by Sam Cohen and Joe Russo and features a voiceover from acclaimed writer and activist Noam Chomsky. The original “Don’t Vote” was released on McCombs’ 2009 studio album, Catacombs.
“I was compelled to write something for the election and I thought of no better way than to troll myself, laying waste to a much-misunderstood song of mine from over a decade ago, ‘Don’t Vote’,” McCombs explained in a press release. “Most people never made it much further than the title, anyway. For this new song, ‘Don’t (Just) Vote,’ the message is clear: Vote, yes, but when you do, imagine the world you would like to see, beyond what appears on your ballot. Harness your imagination and justice becomes inevitable.”
