Billy Bragg TSORNow that we’re finding out the true meaning of the Chinese curse ‘May you live in interesting times’, Billy Bragg, who has just published his acclaimed book, Roots, Radicals & Rockers, returns to his full-time career as protest singer and has now released a new single, The Sleep Of Reason, today via Cooking Vinyl. The single is an impassioned polemical anthem set to a stark buzzsaw melody that is written in response to the events of 2016, it is the first of several songs Billy Bragg plans to release over the course of the coming months.

You can order The Sleep Of Reason here and view the video and his tour dates below
