Elucid Releases His Impressive Cover of Zoe Leonard's "I Want A President"

Without giving me much info, Lessondary member Elucid sent me an MP3 of his cover of Zoe Leonard's poem "I Want A President." I actually played this immediately after placing my vote this morning, and wanted to make sure this impressive cover was released today; low and behold, he threw it up on Bandcamp for the world to partake in.

If you're not familiar with the original, this is the perfect sentiment to drop in a world where we could be electing the first female president, although "I Want A President" takes things a step further. In releasing the cover, Elucid dropped the following statement: "Dizzied by the chaos and confusion of both the US and South African presidential elections during the summer of 2016, I discovered the poem “I Want A President” by Zoe Leonard. The spirit It contained," he continues, "inspired me to record this cover version."
