NYC singer-songwriter Peter Galperin taps into American political unrest with "King Of You And Me"
The lost art of the protest song is back with the single "King Of You And Me", featuring an animated video from Peter Galperin's soon-to-be-released 2017 CD This Burning Sun.
Speaking about his new video and album track, Peter explains, "I started writing "King of You and Me" on January 21, 2017 while watching the Trump inauguration ceremony. That day I was stunned, alarmed and ashamed by what I was seeing and hearing – a man who knew nothing about the world - and still knows nothing - telling us that he was so much greater than every politician sitting behind him on that stage, greater even than 250 years of democracy itself."
Living up to the time-honored tradition of musicians standing up in moments of heated political discourse, Galperin further states, "The only weapons that artists have against evil are satire and ridicule, and since this song is so topical and timely, I decided to try to create an animated video to go along with it. I was lucky to find incredibly talented Portuguese illustrator, João Dias, to work with me on the project. We'll know we've succeeded if we get slammed in a nasty, early morning tweet from you know who."
