Finneas has released his most political song yet: “Where the Poison is,” which targets 45th US President Donald Trump’s handling of the COVID-19 crisis.
Released on November 7, the day the 2020 presidential race was called for Joe Biden, “Where the Poison is” attacks Trump’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic, his attitude during the road to election and the President’s subsequent behavior following president-elect Joe Biden’s victory.
“When all my friends get sick, it’s on the President / When all my friends get sick, it’s on his government,” Finneas sings. “Take me to the place where the poison is / To put a face to what’s poisonous / To give him a little taste of his medicine / There’s a snake that thinks it’s the President.”
“Where the Poison is” continues Finneas’ recent run of socially engaged singles that started with September’s “What They’ll Say About Us,” written after he attended a protest in Los Angeles, and continued with last month’s “Can’t Wait to Be Dead,” which is about his relationship with the internet.
In other Finneas-related news, the artist’s sister and close collaborator Billie Eilish is due to release the new song “Therefore I Am” this Friday. It will follow her July single “My Future.”
