Alynda Segarra, the songwriter behind Hurray for the Riff Raff, has shared the lyric video for a new single entitled “Rican Beach”. The song will appear on Hurray for the Riff Raff’s forthcoming LP The Navigator, the follow-up to 2014’s Small Town Heroes due out March 10th via ATO.

Speaking to Pitchfork about the song, Segarra said, “This is dedicated to the water protectors of Standing Rock — thank you for your bravery and giving us hope. Also, to the people people of Peñuelas, Puerto Rico, who are demanding an end to the AES dumping of coal ash which leads to water contamination — we are with you.”
