Bridges Not Walls is a six-song EP that gives Bragg a much-needed soapbox for songs about the chaotic state of the world in 2017. Each of these tracks explicitly deals with a topic pertaining to our current crises - economic injustice, global warming, xenophobia, the right to protest, and the ways in in which the free market has become a blunt instrument that harms more than it helps

Bridges Not Walls is the sixteenth studio album by singer-songwriter Billy Bragg, compiling six songs released as downloads and physical CD in 2017. It was released as a Mini-LP on November 3, 2017 and includes the new song "Full English Brexit". It was described in Record Collector as "a solid gold illustration of an always inspiring singer-songwriter finding inspiration in the actions of others.

On his latest mini-album Bridges Not Walls, British punk-folk troubadour Billy Bragg has given us the first real 21st Century Anglo-American protest album, and not a second too soon. In the wake of the sickening one-two socio-political gut punch of Brexit and the election of our 45th . President, not to mention the insane litany of cultural paradigm shifts that have been set into effect since, it’s surprising that more protest songs haven’t come out. Bragg’s signature punk-folk style is perfectly put to use here, particularly on the first track The Sleep of Reason.
