Barbra Streisand has stepped back behind the camera to direct the hard-hitting video for her new anti-Donald Trump song “Don’t Lie to Me”.
The singer gathered images of activists and protesters, struggling Americans, natural disasters, environmental destruction, a teary Barack Obama and shots of President Trump and released the politically-charged promo on Tuesday, October 09.
The video begins and ends with the image of a black wall and the song’s heavy final line “Everyone answers to someone” fades into the brickwork.
Opening up about the song’s inspiration, Streisand recently told Billboard, “The Liar in Chief, the Groper in Chief – yeah, I’ve written many articles about this… this person… who has no manners, insults everybody, makes fun of disabled people… I don’t know what to say, I’ve written, like, 15 Huffington Post pieces… It’s my protest, in a sense, about this unprecedented time in our history.”
“Don’t Lie To Me” is the first single from Barbra’s upcoming album “Walls”, which will be released on November 2 – her first album of new material since 2005.
