Listen: L7's First New Single in 18 Years - "Dispatch from Mar-a-Lago"

Written by

Now this was a welcome surprise to wake up to this morning...

Donita Sparks and Suzi Garder's first songwriting collaboration in 18 years has arrived in the form of a return single from L7, the very timely "Dispatch From Mar-a-Lago." Available for streaming or sale this morning from Don Giovanni Records, the new single takes its name from Donald Trump's "Winter White House" and provides one hell of a fun jam to kick off the weekend. Listen below!

"We knew we wanted to make some new L7 music, but also didn't want the pressure or expectation of that First Track weightiness so we went for pure fun and absurdity." explains Sparks. "The lyrical musicality of the word Mar-a-Lago just lent itself to an inspired song of these crazy assed times".

L7 is Donita Sparks (Vocals, Guitar), Suzi Gardner (Lead Guitar), Jennifer Finch (Bass) and Dee Plakas (Drums). Next up is the release of the documentary film, L7: Pretend We're Dead, available worldwide October 13 on Blu-ray/VOD.
