Flock of Dimes Shares New Song, “Potential,” for “Our First 100 Days” Anti-Donald Trump Project
"Our First 100 Days" Will Include a New Song Every Day for the First 100 Days of Donald Trump's Presidency
"Our First 100 Days" is an anti-President Donald Trump project. The good folks behind the "30 Days, 30 Songs" anti-Trump campaign during the election have teamed up with Secretly Group for "Our First 100 Days." They plan to release a new song every day during the first 100 days of Trump's presidency. The latest addition is from Flock of Dimes (the solo project of Wye Oak frontwoman Jenn Wasner) and her song "Potential." Listen below. Also read our recent Artist Survey interview with Wasner, in which she discussed Trump, among other things.
