Feminist punk collective Pussy Riot have unveiled their first English language song: “I Can’t Breathe” was inspired by the tragic death of Eric Garner at the hands of the NYPD and is dedicated to those “who who suffer from state terror—killed, choked, perished because of war and police violence—to political prisoners and those on the streets fighting for change.”

The song was recorded in New York City by Pussy Riot’s Nadya Tolokonnikova and Masha Alyokhina along with guest collaborators Nick Zinner of Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Miike Snow’s Andrew Wyatt. Punk legend Richard Hell also contributed, reciting Garner’s final words at the end of the song.

The accompanying video, filmed in Russia, features Tolokonnikova and Alyokhina in police uniforms, being buried alive. Watch below.
