Supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) have a new anthem to help them “feel the Bern.”
Songwriter Alex Ebert, lead singer of the band Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and “GasLand” filmmaker Josh Fox are teaming up for a new tune and video called "Feel the Bern" to support the Democratic presidential candidate.
“The Bern, the Bern. Feel the Bern, feel the heat, in our lives,” the folksy singers croon in the video that also features clips of Sanders, released Monday. “No more lyin’, no more empty talk,” the song continues.
"I felt like Bernie presented the first opportunity for me to feel honest in writing a sing-along in the simple tradition of social movements focused on a presidential candidate,” Ebert said in a statement. “The intention is for the verses to be improvised and changed as circumstances dictate, with only the choruses are the consistent refrain."
