M.I.A., Disclosure, Lily Allen, Adele, Four Tet, and Caribou are among the artists urging their British fans to vote in the UK’s general election tomorrow. Endorsing Jeremy Corbyn, the Labour party candidate, are M.I.A., Disclosure, Four Tet, Caribou, Lily Allen, Ben UFO, Priests, and more. Allen’s Keane cover “Somewhere Only We Know” soundtracked an official Labour campaign ad released today. (AJ Tracey previously starred in a Labour ad, and JME has interviewed Corbyn.) Adele shared a message calling for people to vote, as did Florence Welch, whose Instagram post—which the xx reposted—featured a red rose, the Labour party logo. Forest Swords photoshopped Corbyn onto the cover of his latest LP, Compassion, captioning the tweet “Corbpassion”; Sleaford Mods changed their screen name to “Vote Corbyn.” See several election-themed posts below.
Polls favor Theresa May’s Conservative party to win tomorrow’s election, with Corbyn and Labour requiring a high youth turnout to bolster chances. May called the snap election in April, seeking a greater parliamentary majority to help the Tories push through “hard Brexit” policies unpopular with other parties’ MPs. Since the election was called, Corbyn and Labour have rapidly narrowed the gap in polls; the most favorable to Labour predict a hung parliament, meaning no party would have enough seats to form an overall majority.
