So, it looks like the Theresa May themed record ‘Liar Liar’ – from London-based band Captain Ska – is set to be the highest new entry in the singles chart this Friday. You remember the singles chart, right? Yes? Good.

Captain Ska originally released their political song in 2010 about the then coalition government, but with the General Election looming they put out a new version last week including soundbites from speeches and interviews given by May. “She’s a liar liar, you can’t trust her, no, no, no”, the song’s lyrics then add.

The release is backed by The People’s Assembly Against Austerity, and proceeds from the track will be given to that organisation and various UK food banks. According to the Official Charts Company, the single is at number seven in the latest Official Chart Update.

Say the band: “The success of this song shows people are fed up with this government of the rich, for the rich. We’re overwhelmed with the support and our message is that people do have the power to change society if we act together”.

Listen to the track on YouTube here. Though that won’t help its chart position. You’ll have to buy it or stream it on Spotify for that.
