New York — Barbra Streisand has released a new political song aimed at President Donald Trump called Don't Lie to Me.

Streisand tells The Associated Press that when she started writing lyrics for the song, she played with the idea of making the track also focus on a relationship and be "very subtle about Trump."

But she adds, "Then I sort of couldn't help myself. I just went ballistic."

Don't Lie to Me was released on Thursday, finds a passionate Streisand questioning the nation's leader and pleading for change.

Lyrics of the song include, "How do you sleep when the world keeps turning?/All that we built has come undone/How do you sleep when the world is burning?/Everyone answers to someone."

The song appears on Walls, Streisand's first album of mainly original tracks since 2005 and it will be released 2 November.
