LEE FIELDS & THE EXPRESSIONS: ‘Wake Up’ video

LEE FIELDS & THE EXPRESSIONS: 'Wake Up' videoThe new video to Lee Fields’ funky lament Wake Up couldn’t have come at a more apposite time, could it? On the track, soul-man Fields delivers a funky look at the state of the nation and is exasperated by what he sees, exhorting people to ‘speak out’ about ‘all these lies’ against a backdrop of animated artwork courtesy of El Oms. A message you have to hope gets through given Trump’s latest rabble-rousing clichĂ© and variant of that old classic, ‘go back where you came from.’. Mind you, if the orange baby really does want to go down that route, perhaps he could sound out Germany to see if it will re-patriate him as a member of its diaspora.
