Lucinda Williams Protests In Songs

I've been reading a lot lately about the lack or complete absence of protest and energy in songs. The country is in shambles yet no one has written his/her "Eve Of Destruction". It looks like Lucinda has taken up the cause. She is releasing Lu in 08 a week before the U.S. presidential election, as a digital EP with live versions of 3 covers: Bob Dylan's "Masters of War," Buffalo Springfield's "For What It's Worth," and the Thievery Corporation/Wayne Coyne collaboration "Marching the Hate Machines Into the Sun." The lone original track will be "Bone of Contention."

Her ninth studio record, "Little Honey" comes out on Lost Highway on Oct. 14th.
