God's Footballer is the first single from Minnie's upcoming record "You're not singing anymore" a rearrangement of Billy Bragg's original track which is based on Wolves Player Peter Knowles.
Minnie's upcoming record explores the relationship between folk music and football.
Enticed by the communal singing on the terraces (which is often only found in folk clubs and places of worship) Minnie began "collecting" football songs.
She weaves her passion for folk and football in to songs that are sprinkled with memories of football fans she has been collecting as part of this project.
Minnie presents a side to the beautiful game we often overlook to show the social, political and historical impacts football has on the people who play it, watch it and live it.
