Pussy Riot imagine the chaos of a Trump presidency in “Make America Great Again” video — watch

on October 27, 2016, 11:17am

Pussy Riot have been on a video-a-day binge this week, and today they’ve revealed the reasoning behind it. The Russian punk protestor group (which now seems to be more of a pop/hip-hop outfit featuring only Nadya Tolokonnikova) has announced the release of a new EP, xxx, for this Friday, October 28th.

The Dave Sitek-produced “Organs” and “Straight Outta Vagina” will feature on the three-song set, as will the newly released “Make America Great Again”. While the previously released tracks were feminist anthems, this new one takes clear aim at Republican presidential nominee Donald J. Trump. (Though, of course, there are still some anti-misogyny sentiments given the target.) The most poppy track of the trio, the Ricky Reed-produced song presents its own plan to keep America great in the plain English of the chorus: “Let other people in/ Listen to your women/ Stop killing black children.”

Like the other xxx songs, this one comes via a new video. In the clip, Tolokonnikova imagines the dystopia of a Trump presidency, one where people are literally branded “outsider”, “fat pig”, or “she made an abortion.” (Okay, so the English isn’t exactly perfect yet.) Directed by Jonas Akerlund (Madonna, Lady Gaga, Beyoncé), the video can be seen above.

Nadya will particpate in a Facebook live interview with the New York Times Editorial Board today at 1:00 PM EST, and will also host a Reddit AMA tomorrow at noon. On November 2nd, she’ll host a Pussy Riot Social Hour at Los Angeles’ ACE Hotel Upstairs. Below, find the xxx tracklist and cover art.
