Barbra Streisand makes her music video directorial debut with the new lyric video, “Don’t Lie To Me.”
“You can build towers of bronze and gold/ You can build castles in the sky/ You can use smoke and mirrors, all clichés/ Not today, not today,” she sings in the soaring new anthem.
The Oscar-winning music legend recently told Billboard there’s no ambiguity about who she is singing about here.
“The Liar in Chief, the Groper in Chief — yeah, I’ve written many articles about this… this person… who has no manners, insults everybody, makes fun of disabled people,” she said. “I don’t know what to say, I’ve written like 15 Huffington Post pieces. This way my way to do my record, because what else could I think about? It’s my protest, in a sense, about this unprecedented time in our history.”
The video is filled with striking imagery of Trump, environmental challenges and social upheaval.
Written and directed by Babs, “Don’t Lie To Me” is from the new album WALLS set for release November 2.
