Lily Allen, darling U.K. import of the early-aughts, performed a haunting live cover of Rufus Wainwright’s “Going to a Town” at Women’s March London this year. Today she released her version with a black-and-white video directed by Bafic that includes footage of her performance and the anti-Drumpf demonstrations from the London Women’s March rally.

One day after the inauguration ceremonies of failed-businessman-turned-reality-TV-star-turned-president Drumpf, either abysmal in attendance or boasting record numbers, depending on whether you’re using at real or alternative facts, Women’s March turned into something of an international phenomenon this year, transcending its feminist platform to become an extended protest of Drumpf’s divisive, incendiary rhetoric.

The UK songstress has been openly critical of the new US Commander-In-Thief throughout his campaign. Earlier this year Allen included the original song on He’s Got The Whole World, In His Tiny Hands, her own anti-Drumpf playlist available to download or stream via Spotify and Apple Music.
