Entrance Releases “Not Gonna Say Your Name” Protest Song to Benefit Planned Parenthood

not-gonna-say-your-name

Los Angeles-based musician Guy Blakeslee (aka Entrance), has released a new track, “Not Gonna Say Your Name,” to coincide with the President-elect’s recent inauguration. Blakeslee says of the song, “I really wanted to write a song expressing my own feelings about the election and the state of things in our country. Like many, I was in a state of mourning. I wondered, how can I sing about this without saying his name?”

In addition to penning his own protest song, Blakeslee has created a playlist of his personal favorite songs of that theme and has given it exclusively to The Talkhouse, – click Here to listen to his picks, as well as “Not Gonna Say Your Name”!

“Not Gonna Say Your Name” is now available via Thrill Jockey and on participating DSPs, with all proceeds from song purchases and streams going directly to Planned Parenthood, an organization that Blakeslee holds near and dear to his heart. “I decided to use the song to benefit PP because one of the things that is so shocking about the election result is that it sends such a negative message to women and girls,” he says. “It’s the least I could do – for all of the women in the world, in my life, and especially for my mother – to fight back and make a clear statement that we will not accept this backwards agenda.”

Entrance will be performing at Planned Parenthood Benefit in Los Angeles on February 14th, 2017. Download “Not Gonna Say Your Name” for $1.00 at This Link!
