Organised by the Working Families Party, the ongoing Jammin’ for Jobs series will air on the Party’s Instagram page. The event began with a conversation between Bragg and Sara Steffens – the Secretary-Treasurer of the Communications Workers of America.

The Working Families Party wrote on Instagram: “Turn on your notifications to tune into our IG LIVE sessions as @billybraggofficial @lucydacus @steveearle @anjimile @butlerwills and more participate in a series of conversations with labor leaders around the country to talk about passing the PRO Act.”

The organisation went on to describe the act as “a MASSIVE piece of labor reform legislation that would strengthen collective bargaining rights, create penalties for corporations that violate workers’ rights, let unions override restrictive ‘right to work’ laws and establish protections around union elections.”

Other artists taking part include Arcade Fire’s Will Butler, Anjimile and Steve Earl.

Last month, Dacus has announced details of her third album ‘Home Video’ and shared its lead single ‘Hot & Heavy’.

“I thought I was writing ‘Hot & Heavy’ about an old friend, but I realized along the way that it was just about me outgrowing past versions of myself,” Dacus said of the track.

‘Home Video’ will be released on June 25, with two songs set to feature backing vocals from Dacus’ boygenius bandmates Phoebe Bridgers and Julien Baker.
