Anne-Marie has shared a new and very political song called ‘Dear Mrs Prime Minister’.
The singer-songwriter known for the hits ‘Ciao Adios’ and ‘Rockabye’ with Clean Bandit posted a two-minute video of her performing the song on Twitter.
Anne-Marie begins the song by singing: “Dear Mrs Prime Minister / We’re not one bit similar / So how’re you supposed to know a thing about us?”
“I don’t believe a word you say,” she continues. “And as for Mr President / It’s like World War III / And he don’t give a fuck.”
“So much drama, people dying / Police shooting, children crying / You know? No, you don’t,” Anne-Marie laments, before pledging to fight back with the lyrics: “No, we won’t keep quiet / Nothing’s gonna frighten us.”
Listen to the full song below.
This is called.
Dear Mrs Prime Minister

Meanwhile, Anne-Marie recently revealed that her upcoming album, due for release in early 2018, will feature a collaboration with Ed Sheeran.
“We’ve been friends for nearly 10 years now, so we’ve always wanted to work with each other, and obviously he’s always out of the country and I’m always out of the country,” she told NME. “So one time we were both in London and we just got in the studio and we did this song. We want work with each other more definitely – it’s just the time.”
