Excerpts of speeches from US presidential candidate used on track by Thurston Moore

Thurston Moore has teamed up with the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign on a new song called ‘Feel It In Your Guts’.

The track is built around the playing of a 12-string acoustic guitar by Moore alongside excerpts of speeches from Sanders touching on topics like economic inequality, social justice and the worship of money.

The track has been issued in a run of 1000 hand-numbered copies on square, white flexi-disc vinyl and all records will be given away for free to those who make individual donations to the Sanders campaign. You can order it here by attaching a screenshot of your donation.
