The Gun Has No Trigger Songfacts says: The first single from Dirty Projectors' sixth album, Swing Lo Magellan, finds frontman Dave Longstreth singing about the powerless population. But now the banks are closed," he croons. "And nothing gets bigger. The crowd will yell but the gun has no trigger." He told The Guardian the song is "an oblique portrait of America." The song was released on March 30, 2012.
