A Tribe Called Red drops a free single on this most colonial of national holidays.
And that song is none other than a 2015 remix of legendary Cree singer Buffy Sainte Marie‘s classic “Working for the Government”. In A Tribe Called Red‘s capable hands, the song transforms from an already upbeat anthem into a rockin’, four-on-the-floor, dancefloor destroyer.
Mixing politics and partying you say? Ironically celebrating Canada, you say? Sounds like a perfect pairing.
And what could be more CanCon than a collab between the first lady of Indigenous song, and one of the newly dubbed Top 10 Canadian Bands of All Time?
