Exclusive: Free Download of “Anonymous,” the New Single by Conor Oberst’s Desaparecidos


Desaparecidos Press Here

Desaparecidos, the recently reunited, politically minded rock-and roll-outfit led by Bright Eyes frontman Conor Oberst, is gearing up for its first New York-area shows in more than a decade—this coming Tuesday and Wednesday at NYC’s Webster Hall. For the occasion, the band is offering MoJo readers an exclusive free download of its new single “Anonymous,” a rambunctious ode to the shadowy hacktivist group (which we’ve written about on several recent occasions). Unlike so many contemporary protest songs that reek of moralistic windbaggery, “Anonymous,” actually rocks pretty hard as Oberst bellows: 

“Slay Goliath! Slay Goliath!”
The flashmob all held up their phones
But you cannot predict when the students riot
And a big machine always moves slow
So throw your little stone

You can’t stop us
We are Anonymous
You can’t stop us
We are Anonymous
Expect us
We know what all of us know

Give it a listen and judge for yourself. You can click at right for your free download:

THANK YOU.

We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
