While various celebrities who oppose Trump continue to urge people to register to vote, others are taking a different approach: protesting him instead.

Aimee Mann is the latest star to lend her talents to the anti-Trump brigade with a new track, “Can’t You Tell?” released Tuesday as part of Dave Eggers’ 30 Days, 30 Songs playlist.

The project, which launched on Spotify and Apple Music Monday, features songs “written and recorded by musicians for a Trump-free America,” with a new one being released every day at noon ET, until Nov. 8. Mann is only the second artist to be featured; Death Cab For Cutie released the inaugural song, “Million Dollar Loan.” Other musicians contributing to the project include R.E.M., Bhi Bhiman and Thao Nguyen. 

All proceeds from the project will go toward the Center for Popular Democracy, a non-profit organization that works to create equity, opportunity and a dynamic democracy.
