“I Can’t Breathe,” Pussy Riot’s first song in English, is dedicated to Eric Garner, who was strangled and killed by a police officer in July. The track also features the talents of Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Nick Zinner, Miike Snow’s Andrew Wyatt, and Richard Hell.

“This song is for Eric and for all those from Russia to America and around the globe who suffer from state terror — killed, choked, perished because of war and state sponsored violence of all kinds — for political prisoners and those on the streets fighting for change,” says the band of the clip.

Check out the powerful clip below, where Pussy Riot members Nadya Tolokonnikova and Masha Alyokhina are buried alive in Russian prison uniforms.
