Lily Allen Covers Rufus Wainwright's 'Going To A Town' At Women's March

"I'm going to a town that has already been burnt down ... I'm so tired of you, America."

As the world grapples with a new U.S. president bent on stripping away American freedoms, we’re at least getting some damn good protests songs out of it.

On Tuesday, musician Lily Allen released a haunting cover of Rufus Wainwright’s already somber song, “Going To A Town.” The song, first released in 2007, seems more lyrically relevant than ever.

“I’m going to a town that has already been burnt down / I’m going to a place that has already been disgraced,” Allen croons in a video that shows the singer performing at the Women’s March in London. “I’m gonna see some folks who have already been let down / I’m so tired of America.”

Last weekend’s march drew millions of people from all over the world in protest of Trump’s xenophobiaracism, misogyny and proposed policies.  

Artists across the musical spectrum have made their opposition to Trump clear. After a six-year hiatus, the Gorillaz introduced an anti-Trump song last week called “Halleujah Money.” And Father John Misty’s new song, “Pure Comedy,” mourns the state of the world in a video that prominently features Trump.
