Ani DiFranco continues to advocate for women as the November election approaches. Today she released her powerful new song “Play God” off her forthcoming full-length, the first new music from DiFranco since 2014’s Allergic To Water.
The official video for the track was shot and edited by Shervin Lainez and features clips from women’s rights protests around the country shot by women’s rights organization Lady Parts Justice, founded by comedian, political writer, and producer Lizz Winstead, co-creator of The Daily Show and Air America Radio.
In light of the current political climate in the United States, DiFranco is using her 2016 VOTE DAMMIT! tour and her music to encourage fans to vote on Election Day and have their voices be heard. The tour dates are below.
