Mirah recently shared the new song “No Guns No Guns” as part of the “30 Days, 30 Songs” (now expanded to 50 songs) anti-Donald Trump campaign put together by author/publisher Dave Eggers and Death Cab for Cutie manager Jordan Kurland. Now the song has a video. It features live footage of Mirah performing the song at Brooklyn’s Cmon Everybody and includes excerpts of a speech from New York City Council Member Jumaane D. Williams he gave on April 17th, 2016 at a Bernie Sanders rally in Prospect Park, Brooklyn. Watch the video below.

Mirah previously released this statement about her song:

“This song is the feeling of wanting to rowdily but peacefully recreate our country to be the place we want it to be. It’s a rallying song, a protest song, about feeling sick of war, sick of the political stagnation in Washington, sick of the murders of unarmed black men and women at the hands of police, sick of all gun violence and senseless death, sick of bigotry and racism and about wanting to harness the power of the people’s desire to live free, healthy and empowered lives. We want to create a society and a world where everyone is treated with dignity and respect. We want to keep perfecting the Union while rejecting divisiveness. Let’s make it beautiful and let’s have fun doing it. No Guns No Guns! And Never Trump.”

The “30 Days, 30 Songs” project will feature at least one song a day until election day. It was launched with Death Cab for Cutie’s anti-Trump song “Million Dollar Loan,” and includes Jim James’ video for “Same Old Lie,” Franz Ferdinand’s “Demagogue,” Thao’s “Before You Vote,” EL VY’s “Are These My Jets,” two songs by Moby (“Trump Is on Your Side” and “Little Failure”), Jesu/Sun Kil Moon’s “The Greatest Conversation Ever in the History of the Universe,” clipping.‘s “Fat Fingers,” Mirah’s “No Guns No Guns,” The Long Winters’ “Make America Great Again,” Jimmy Eat World’s “My Enemy,” Kyle Craft’s “Before the Wall,” Tim Heidecker’s “Trump’s Pilot,” and a video of Andrew Bird and Jim James performing an updated version of “Sic of Elephants.”
