Barbra Streisand is one of the most famous voices in the world—and she's never shied away from using that voice to share her political views. So it's fitting that the election of Donald Trump is what inspired her to create Walls, her first album of primarily original songs since 2005. "He's dividing the country," she tells Glamour. "He's pulling us apart."
Walls, which will be released on November 2, also got Streisand back into the director's chair for the music video of the first single off the album, "Don't Lie to Me." In addition to the new songs, Walls also includes Streisand's 2018 reimaginings of classics like "What the World Needs Now" and "Happy Days Are Here Again," which once served as the unofficial theme song of the Democratic party. "I tried to make the songs universal," she says. "They're not just political rants."
