Eric Clapton has released an upbeat new song called "Pompous Fool", released on the same day the U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced his retirement following ongoing scandals.

In the past, the guitarist has been critical of Johnson, particularly around his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic when the prime minister decided that proof of vaccination would be required at venues for U.K. concertgoers.

Singing 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 released the track unexpectedly without any previous press or further explanation around the song.

Clapton, who has been outspokenly anti-Covid vaccine and against the lockdown throughout the pandemic, released “This Has Gotta Stop,” addressing the new rules around live performance in lyrics This has gotta stop / Enough is enough / I can’t take this BS any longer / It’s gone far enough.”

Currently on the North American leg of his 2022 tour, the guitar legend recently tested positive shortly after his second concert at Royal Albert Hall in London, according to an official statement on Clapton’s Facebook page, and had to reschedule several dates of his European tour.
