John Grant has shared a mournful new song about the state of American politics. 'The Only Baby' is a low-key, minor-chord funeral march for the U.S.A's state of democracy.

Grant skewers the Christian Right, racism and of course Donald Trump in a near-ten minute lament that spans the history of the Untied States. He posted the new tune along with a lyric video this morning on this social media. Have a look:

John Grant wrote along with the song: "I’ve been so disturbed to see how things are progressing in the U.S. and the world, I wanted to share this song which I wrote and recorded last summer...I know I have to figure out a way to stay calm and continue to resist the onslaught of lies without being dissolved from the inside out by my own rage and the hatred I feel towards these people who scream at the top of their lungs that we do not hear what we hear or see what we see."

"Yes I've heard of yoga...I'll look into it," he added.
