A Glimpse into the past..

Concept albums on election campaigns are not commonplace in the musical landscape, especially when the focus is centered on the strength of the songs themselves, rather than on the appeal of any particular artist.

This is definitely the case of The Candidates from New York, a collection of songs inspired by one of the most important moments in American history, the 2016 Presidential Campaign between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.

Campaign songs were one of the most popular ways to spread political messages. Promoters, politicians and even supporters were able to match their own lyrics with the power of popular Irish and Scottish melodies, minstrel songs and ballads. American Pioneer Music first released Abraham Lincoln and the 1864 Election in 2013. Now, the 2016 campaign comes alive by applying the old themes and melodies to the modern political experience.

This modern compilation contains humor in such songs as "Oh that Donald" and "Trump Trump Trump" as well as important policy and scathing criticism as in songs like "Washington is a Hard Road to Travel" and  "When this Old Hat was New." Almost all the melodies have been used in previous election and political songs, with some based directly off of songs from past campaigns, such as "The Clinton Girl's Song."

The album is bound to make you laugh, cry and maybe even make your blood boil!

The release date is scheduled for August 1st, 2016.
