New 13/01/2021

John Fogerty has released a new song along with a music video, titled 'Weeping in the Promised Land'.

Reacting to current events happening over at the States, the ex-Creedence Clearwater revival leader has called out President Donald Trump, law-enforcement officials and more in this new track, while touching on topics of Covid-19 and Black Lives Matter.

"I took a look back at what 2020 has been and tried to get my feelings out about the political climate, Black Lives Matter, COVID and everything else that occurred this year," he said in a statement. "Friends are dying, we are stuck at home, we are indeed weeping in the promised land."

Watch the full video below.

The lyrics, Fogerty refers President Trump as a "forked tongue pharaoh" obsessed with power and "shouting down" a "medicine man", who is most likely to be Dr. Anthony Fauci, the leading immunologist.

Fogerty also called out those responsible for the deaths of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd, and the judges who saw no evidence of crimes. At one point in the song, the backing track stops and he shouts "I can't breathe", which were the last words repeatedly said by Floyd as Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin put his knee on his neck.
