“THE SIMPSONS” AND “SPINAL TAP” STAR
Releases Sixth Song in Donald Trump Series
A high quality person
Second to none
I barely know him
They tell me he’s my
Number One Son
My Number One Son
Today (September 4) HARRY SHEARER releases “NUMBER ONE SON“ as the sixth track as Donald Trump in a series which runs with a song a week leading up the November election. Over the summer, the star of “The Simpsons” and “Spinal Tap“ has been exploring, through song, the dark and often comical recesses of the president’s mind during his time in office.
“NUMBER ONE SON“ proves, in SHEARER’s words, that,
“The apple doesn’t fall far from the refrigerator.”
With more to follow, “NUMBER ONE SON”is Donald Sr.’s paean to his eldest child Donald Jr. The song depicts the current incumbent of The Oval Office singing an “electric chop suey” tribute to his favorite first born. Charting all the qualities he holds dear in his eldest son, from his penchant for hunting to his conversations with Russians, SHEARER‘s president reveals his new found love for the boy who serves him well.
The new track follows the old-school R&B anthem to Jared Kushner “SON IN LAW”; the disco/plaintive folk number celebrating Trump’s consistent inconsistency in his approach to the pandemic “COVID-180“; VERY STABLE GENIUS” a low-power power-ballad, in which the leader of the free world vaunts his self-proclaimed intellectual prowess combined with his calm and balanced disposition; “STORMY DANIELS,” a romantic ballad of passion, power and pay off; and last week’s “ALABAMA,” a southern rock style tribute to the state that holds such a special place in Trump’s “heart.”
With music and lyrics by SHEARER, “NUMBER ONE SON” also has “The Simpsons” star on vocals as Donald Trump. He is joined by Sharlotte Gibson and CJ Vanston on backing vocals, Marc Bonilla on guitars, Toss Panos on drums and CJ Vantson on keyboard and other instruments. It is mastered by Peter Doell at Aftermaster and released by Twanky Records.
HARRY SHEARER has vocally portrayed every U.S. president of his lifetime. Donald Trump is the third he has portrayed physically, having previously played Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan on screen.
HARRY SHEARER says of the series of Trump-themed songs, which will be released on a weekly basis over the next seven weeks:
“My Donald Trump is almost as eager for continued public attention as the’real’ Trump.”
