Mickey Hart and Tank

Listen To Tank’s Collaboration With Grateful Dead’s Mickey Hart, “Big Bad Wolf”

On November 10, Grateful Dead drummer will release a solo album, RAMU, via Verve Forecast. In celebration, he’s dropped off two singles. “Wayword Son” features Animal Collective’s Avey Tare, but it’s “Big Bad Wolf” that’s got a piece of New Orleans in it.

Tarriona “Tank” Ball, lead vocalist for Tank and the Bangas, is the featured guest on the cut. On it, she takes a shot at the president, saying “But it’s about to get real in this bitch /For a big Trump took a huge dump on the American progression / Wiped his ass with the American flag / And now half the stars are missing.” Check it out below.

As reported by Rolling Stone (as quoted by Pitchfork), “Hart said that the election of President Trump and the current political climate was a major influence on RAMU. ‘I can’t tell you how loud I’m screaming and, as a musician, this is how we scream – to shine light on things that are dark, and shine some understanding on life and this horrible human being leading our country.'”
