Ani DiFranco “New Bible” – Time to adopt different way

Ani DiFranco’s latest album ‘Unprecedented Sh!t’ is being heralded by a pair of singles ‘The Thing At Hand‘ and the song we’re featuring today ‘New Bible.’   It’s a song which depicts a way of living that stands aside from relentless consumerism and envisages  making a choice to “mend the failures of the profit system / let’s rewrite the law books / quit following the path of least resistance / cuz that’s what makes the river crooked.”  It is a call, then, to both individual and collective bravery.

Unprecedented Sh!t’  – unsurprisingly – is an album of political comment.  It is Ani DiFranco’s 23rd release, and will be available 12th July via her own Righteous Babe Records.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
