Gang Of Four return with a four track EP titled Complicit tomorrow. The EP already generated a lot of interest due to its cover star - Ivanka Trump - and there's even more buzz now that Gang Of Four premiered the first song. "Ivanka (Things You Can't Have)," which premiered this week features lyrics taken from statements Ivanka has made backed by an electro beat.

Andy Gill's statement on the song:

"It would’ve been easy to be extremely damning about Donald Trump and of course, like everyone else, I could have called him all kinds of names. What drew me to this subject at all was the running commentary from Ivanka in the earlier stages of this administration—it was fascinating to get a kind of explanation or justification from the daughter who had already been given an official position within the White House. And frankly, a lot of it was pretty funny. But although the characters in the Trump family are interesting, it’s more the ideologies and politics which they represent and enable which need describing."

Meanwhile in a new interview Gill revealed that he's working on a full length Gang Of Four album that will be out in June. He told Spill that he's about eight songs in at this point and may include a couple of songs from the Complicit EP. He's still figuring out which direction to take, revealing "the exciting thing to me is there's still a number of different ways we could go."
