The 30 Days 30 Songs series of anti-Trump songs continues today with “Despierata,” the first song ever by Filthy Friends.

Pitchfork points out that the song will appear on Filthy Friends’ 2017 debut album as well. Listen to it, along with a playlist of the rest of the ’30 Days 30 Songs’ contributions (including two new Moby songs):
