The project, titled "Feel It In Your Guts," is a twelve-string acoustic piece, interspersed with soundbites from Bernie's most popular campaign speeches, specifically about the negative aspects of capitalism, social/civil justice, and socioeconomic inequality.
Karl Hofstetter, president of Joyful Noise, issued a statement in regard to the collab:
Being a weird-o indie rock record label, we are fortunate to work with a variety of incredible musicians, including, on occasion, the great Thurston Moore. Amazingly, the Bernie campaign responded, and within a week or so, we heard that Bernie himself was into the idea. The amazing folks at the Bernie campaign have worked closely with us to make this crazy collaboration a reality.
The track is limited to 1,000 hand-numbered copies, and is currently available digitally, and also on vinyl (for free, if you donated to Bernie's campaign).
