Poppy has shared an inspired cover today. The experimental electronic-metal star has released her own version of iconic queer anthem 'All The Things She Said' by t.A.T.u. Made to celebrate Pride Month, Poppy aknowledges the struggle of Black people all over the world in an accompanying press note that slams Donald Trump.

Poppy's cover is remarkably faithful to the 2002 original with no real deviations from melody or feeling: Poppy delivers the lyrics in the same powerful desperation as t.A.T.u. did eighteen years ago.

Still, there's a galloping cloud of heavy percussion and guitar rolling behind the star, making this cover a clear Poppy production.

Hear it:

In the accompanying press information, Poppy released a statement about her original intention, aknowledging the current Civil Rights Movement taking place in the USA and around the world.

"I cannot adequately express my disdain for how our government, and above all, our president is reacting to what’s happening in America right now. I encourage you to educate yourself, go out and protest, donate, and raise your voice to speak out against this injustice" Poppy said.

"I’ll also be sharing a few links to donate to if you have the means to do so. I stand with you in love," she added.
