"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 Swedish singer/songwriter Jens Lekman and the song "Your Laugh." Listen below.

Lekman released a new album, Life Will See You Now, last month via Secretly Canadian.
