Skunk Anansie have unleashed a raging new single, Piggy.

Before they head out on tour in March and April, the Britrock legends are giving fans a taste of new music while also letting people know exactly where their heads are at right now politically: “If there’s one thing we’ve all learned over the past couple of years is that we cannot depend upon our governments to look after us," says Skin.

"They seem to be unable to learn from the past and incapable of securing a decent future. This song was written in a moment of rage combined with bitter disillusionment. Brexit then a complete mis-handling of COVID, how the hell did we get to this?”

Watch the Piggy lyric video below:

Skunk Anansie will be hitting the road in the spring, with Skin promising of what's to come from those shows: “Through thick and thin, through all of our trials and tribulations, our fans are the ones who have kept us going for all this time. So we aim to thank them the best way we can which is to bring them our best show ever! Right now we feel that we have a lot of shared troubles, we aim to honour that, not avoid it, but also bring a bit of relief from them. We’re really looking forward to being onstage again and are stupidly excited for the tour! Chomping on the bit to get back to what we do best and cannot fucking wait for ya’ll to hear the new stuff.”
