Oliver Anthony Releases New Song As World Teeters On The ‘Brink Of War’

Factory worker turned star working class songwriter Oliver Anthony has released a new song, “I Want To Go Home,” that focuses on the march towards a possible third world war due to escalation of the conflict in Ukraine. The Farmville, Virginia native’s latest single comes as Anthony’s “Rich Men North Of Richmond” has surged to the top of all streaming charts to become the most viral song in the nation.

The new single follows the same template of much of Anthony’s catalogue in featuring just himself and his guitar. “We’re on the brink of the next World War / And I don’t think nobody’s praying no more. Every damn day is always some kind of bill to pay / People just doing what the rich man say,” read the lyrics.

“People have really gone and lost their way / They all just do what the TVs say,” the song goes on.
