    Watch: Ry Cooder Sings "The Mutt Romney Blues"
    Susan Titelman

    Ry Cooder, having just premiered one new song, “Going to Tampa,” via The New Yorker’s News Desk blog, has now lent another new song, “The Mutt Romney Blues,” to a short satirical video by the progressive activists Brave New Films. The song and video tell the now well-known tale of the unusual al fresco car ride of former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney’s dog, only this time from a decidedly different perspective: that of the trusty pooch himself. This dog’s tune is, of course, a blues. Watch the video below.

    You can hear Ry Cooder’s “Going to Tampa,” which looks ahead to this fall’s Republican National Convention in that town, here and download his song “Wall Street Part of Town” here. You’ll find his latest album, 2011’s Pull Up Some Dust and Sit Down—"an impassioned portrait of 21st century America and its injustices,” says Uncut—in the  Nonesuch Store, where CD orders include instant downloads of the complete album.

    "Though the exact day is not known, it was fifteen years ago that Lake Street Dive became a band," says Rachael Price. "McDuck wrote our name on the chalkboard of a practice room and it was done. We didn’t know each other that well. We had zero idea of what kind of music we would play. We certainly didn’t know that fateful day marked the beginning of the longest platonic double date of my life. We have been through so much together ... Happy Fifteenth Bandiversary, y'all!"
