Harry Shearer has announced an album of his satirical songs written from the perspective of Donald Trump. Which is possibly poorly timed now that the President has come down with COVID-19. Who knows? How are we meant to feel about all that?

Anyway, in recent months Shearer has been posting weekly songs in the guise of Trump to YouTube. He’s now planning to release those songs as an album, titled ‘The Many Moods Of Donald Trump’, on 30 Oct, three days before the US presidential election.

“America has never had a President so demanding of our continued attention”, says Shearer. “I decided to give him too much of mine”.

The latest track released from the album is ‘Executive Time’, the video for which you can watch here:

In other Shearer-related political news, Spinal Tap have announced that they will reunite for a political fundraiser for the Democrats in Pennsylvania – an important state for the outcome of the election – on 14 Oct.

Shearer and bandmates Christopher Guest and Michael McKean will appear at a virtual event hosted by ‘This Is Spinal Tap’ director Rob Reiner and comedian Patton Oswalt.
