Lily Allen was among the many musicians who participated in Women’s Marches across the world last Saturday, joining Madonna, Sleater-Kinney, Janelle Monáe, and many others in expressing their resistance to anti-feminist policies and ideals promoted by the new Trump administration. The British singer took part in the Women’s March on London, performing a new cover of Rufus Wainwright’s “Going to a Town” to a crowd of fellow protesters.

Today, Allen released a studio version of that cover featuring music by Mark Ronson along with a black-and-white music video by Bafic. The video captures footage from the Women’s March on London, including a clip of Allen’s live performance. Watch it above.

Allen recently included Wainwright’s original version of the song in an anti-Trump playlist entitled “He’s Got the Whole World, In His Tiny Hands”. Listen to the full playlist below via Spotify.
