ANTI- Records will issue Marc Ribot’s new album Songs Of The Resistance 1942 – 2018 on September 14. The guitarist’s guest-filled protest record includes the track “The Militant Ecologist” featuring Meshell Ndegeocello.
Ribot recorded a mix of traditional protest songs and new originals on the 11 track Songs Of The Resistance 1942 – 2018. In addition to Ndegeocello, additional guests appearing on the album include Tom Waits, Steve Earle, Sam Amidon, Justin Vivian Bond, Fay Victor, Tift Merritt and Ohene Cornelius. Proceeds from the “Anti-Trump” record will be donated to Indivisible Guide.
“I am alarmed by Trump and the movement he’s part of,” Ribot stated. “I’ve spent a good chunk of my life running around the world on tour—I’m kind of an accidental internationalist—and I see that he’s not an isolated phenomenon. And if we don’t deal with what is going on, it is going to deal with us.”
“The Militant Ecologist,” which is a reworked version of the Italian resistance song “Fischia il Vento,” can be heard accompanied by a visualizer made by Jem Cohen below:
