Ani DiFranco bids farewell to President Obama in new song

Ani DiFranco has released a new song and accompanying video dedicated to President Barack Obama. The song, "Deferred Gratification,” is a mournful yet defiant, New Orleans parade-tinged thank you to him.

It's one that DiFranco told Rolling Stone salutes President Obama “for being not just the spiritual center of the third verse of this song, but for being the most awesome (expletive) human being any citizen could ever have the privilege of voting for as their president.

"You lifted us up and you gave us our pride back," DiFranco continued. "Goddess give us the strength to harness that belief in ourselves now and go forward."

At present, the song is only available via social media and You Tube, but it will be included on DiFranco's forthcoming album "Binary," due this spring.
