As the transition of power begins and Donald Trump takes control of the White House there have been many forms of protest. Massive marches, benefit concerts, and music. Artists are putting their creativity into speaking on the current political climate.
Emma Ruth has released a song to benefit Planned Parenthood titled “Forever, As The Setting Son”
Ruth released this statement on the new release.
“Forever, As The Setting Son” was written and recorded in a humble lo-fi setting in Los Angeles some years ago. Yes it’s “Son” and yes it’s noisy and emotional, all reasons why I couldn’t bring myself to ever re-track this song. I find myself filled with grief these days, similar to that expressed in the song, over many of the issues we as humans, as tenants of the Earth, will face in the coming era. While I am unable to join the marches set to take place all over the U.S. on Saturday, I would like to offer this song and will be donating all the proceeds to Planned Parenthood. I have been grateful for them in my life, as a young woman, and hope that we can come together to preserve the future of such an important institution in this divisive time so that they may continue to provide care for people of all races, religions, sexes, countries of origin, all genders. Be excellent to each other.
