Hamilton Leithauser – “The Song With No Name” (Shane MacGowan Cover)

Last month, the benefit compilation Philia: Artists Rise Against Islamophobia was announced alongside a new track from Heems, and today Hamilton Leithauser has shared his contribution to the compilation, a cover of “The Song With No Name,” originally recorded by Irish folk-punk group Shane MacGowan (of Pogues fame) And The Popes. “With so many real problems in the world, it is disheartening that the President of the United States continues to preach base xenophobia, dim-witted anger, and hate,” Leithauser told CoS. “His signature accomplishment thus far is the amplification of irrational fear and prejudice.” Listen to it below.

Philia: Artists Rise Against Islamophobia is out 8/19 on Floating House. Pre-order it here. Proceeds will go toward the Unity Productions Foundation
