Listen/Watch: Death Cab For Cutie - Million Dollar Loan

Death Cab For Cutie take aim at American presidential candidate Donald Trump with their new song 'Million Dollar Loan', the release of which kicks off a musical project called 30 days 30 songs. The project will roll out songs 'written and recorded by artists for a Trump-free America', at a rate of one per day from now until Election Day on 8th November. Death Cab's contribution stems from a "particularly tone deaf moment" from the Trump campaign that struck at the core of singer Ben Gibbard, as he explains in a statement...

Lyrically, “Million Dollar Loan” deals with a particularly tone deaf moment in Donald Trump’s ascent to the Republican nomination. While campaigning in New Hampshire last year, he attempted to cast himself as a self-made man by claiming he built his fortune with just a “small loan of a million dollars” from his father. Not only has this statement been proven to be wildly untrue, he was so flippant about it. It truly disgusted me. Donald Trump has repeatedly demonstrated that he is unworthy of the honor and responsibility of being President of the United States of America, and in no way, shape or form represents what this country truly stands for. He is beneath us.
