As people head home from the polls today (Nov. 4), Anti-Flag‘s Chris #2 has a musical treat for you.

The Anti-Flag bassist, singer and activist has released a cover of Pete Seeger’s ‘What Did You Learn in School Today?,’ which you can stream via Spotify below:

“We were asked to play Seeger Fest this year celebrating Pete Seeger’s life,” Chris #2 said in a statement. “In that process going over Pete’s incredible collection of songs I stumbled over ‘What Did You Learn In School Today?’. It immediately struck me. I just wanted to do a song that demonstrates why the medium of folk music can be so powerful. That melody lodges itself in your brain, yet the lyrics are tremendously visceral and poignant.”

The song is part of a new compilation, ‘This Concerns Everyone,’ of acoustic covers and original protest songs from big artists including Rage Against the Machine‘s Tom Morello, Rise Against‘s Tim McIlrath and Chris Wollard of Hot Water Music.

‘This Concerns Everyone’ will hit the streets on Nov. 18 via A-F Records and can be pre-ordered here.
