And now, a concept album based on Donald Trump

I know, I know. Just like you, I’m annoyed that no one has written a song about former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. Happily, though, our wait is over.

School of Language, a band out of the UK, has issued 45, the world’s first-ever Donald Trump concept album. And hey, it’s out just in time for President Cheeto’s first visit to the UK.

I wouldn’t exactly call this a protest record. Instead, it’s a cycle of songs that touch on some of The Orange Man’s favourite themes.

“Nobody Knows” reminds us that Trump is always telling us that nobody knows more about…anything than he does. We get to sing along with “A Beautiful Wall” and chant along with “Lock Her Up.” “Rocketman” details his bromance with Kim Jung-Un. Lest we forget, Trump has access to “The Best People” for his administration. And at one point on the album, a psychiatrist wants to know if Donald’s is all there.

The album is out digitally now. A physical release is coming later in the summer. Listen to the whole thing below.
