Eric Clapton Releases New Song ‘Pompous Fool’

Eric Clapton released a new song titled “Pompous Fool” on Thursday (July 7), the same day that British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced his resignation following a string of scandals.

“Don’t you worry, don’t be blue / Let your woman, take care of you / Live your life, by the golden rule / Pay no mind, to the pompous fool,” Clapton sings as the upbeat tune bounces along a jovial beat.

Fans wrote online that the tune was inspired by the controversial politician, as Clapton was known to be quite critical of Johnson in the past, specifically on the leader’s handling of the Covid pandemic.

Clapton released “This Has Gotta Stop” last year, condemning Johnson’s Covid-related rules with lines like, “This has gotta stop / Enough is enough / I can’t take this BS any longer / It’s gone far enough.”
