Billboard Magazine reports:
50-year-old singer and actor Billy Porter can’t help but look seven months ahead to see the November general election on the horizon. He knows that in order to vote out President Donald Trump, people are going to need to be galvanized to a cause. Luckily, he has a galvanizing anthem for the world to hear.
On Friday (Apr. 24), Porter released his new cover of Buffalo Springfield’s 1966 hit protest song “For What It’s Worth.”
Porter’s version is similar to the Stephen Stills-penned track, with its psychedelic guitars and prescient political lyrics, but adds his own twist, with deeper drums, heavier production and Porter’s own soulful spirit shining through.
