Billy Porter continues to showcase his versatility on his version of Buffalo Springfield’s 1966 protest song For What It’s Worth. The Kinky Boots and Pose star adds a level of timely gravitas in the song which Porter sees as reflecting the current political climate in his native USA.
The stark production has a slight R&B, old school hip hop feel powering through it – something channelled in the artwork for the single (which we have included below). Porter hopes that the song will motivate his countrymen to head to the polls in November and vote.
The song takes a massive detour from Porter’s previous musical release: barnstorming dance anthem Love Yourself which dropped last June. The American Horror Story actor is also hard at work on a studio album inspired by disco icon Sylvester, a memoir, and the new live action version of Cinderella.
