White flexi-disc vinyl.
Former Sonic Youth guitarist Thurston Moore and Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders have collaborated on a new song titled ‘Feel It In Your Guts’.
The track pairs 12-string acoustic guitar plucking by Moore with excerpts of speeches from the Presidential candidate that will touch on topics including “the worship of money, economic inequality, social justice, and the need for basic human rights for all people”.
Joyful Noise Recordings have released the track as a white flexi-disc vinyl, limited to 1,000 hand-numbered copies with screenprinted cover art by David Kloc. The record is available for free with individual donations to the Sanders campaign. The track is also being released on digital.
The idea for the edition began with Joyful Noise boss Karl Hofstetter who wanted to find some way to support the campaign. After Thurston Moore agreed, they reached out to campaign and quickly received support from Sanders.
“The amazing folks at the Bernie campaign have worked closely with us to make this crazy collaboration a reality,” he said.
