Description

On Inauguration Day 2017, Nonesuch Records issued a 7-inch vinyl single featuring two Randy Newman songs: "A Few Words in Defense of Our Country," from the new Randy Newman Songbook box set, b/w "Putin," a new song released digitally in October 2016. Newman first presented the lyrics of "A Few Words in Defense of Our Country" as an op-ed piece in the New York Times in January 2007, in response to a State of the Union address by then-President George W. Bush, and included the song on his 2008 album Harps and Angels. The Los Angeles Times called it a "three-decades-on bookend to 'Political Science'" that was "so funny it hurt." Upon the release of "Putin," just prior to the 2016 presidential election, the New York Times said the song, "featuring a billowy orchestra in razzle-dazzle mode, feels uncannily well timed...As is often the case in Mr. Newman's satire, the tone lands somewhere in between scathing and sympathetic, making earnest points amid ridicule."
