Whether she likes it or not, first daughter Ivanka Trump is the face of an iconic post-punk band’s new EP, “Complicit,” a critique of sorts on American politics.

Gang of Four revealed their mini-album cover Wednesday, featuring Trump close-lipped standing behind a microphone with American flags behind her. The first daughter is also the namesake for the second track on the EP coming out April 20, “Ivanka (Things You Can’t Have),” Pitchfork reported.

Guitarist Andy Gill, in a statement about the track, connected it to “the media” and what it means to the public.

“Ideas about Jews, Muslims, or, say, the World Trade Center or perhaps, the criminality of certain American politicians,” Gill said. “And then there is the receding traditional media with disappearing jobs like ‘journalists’ and ‘fact checkers.’ That’s the media the Trump family despise.”

Ivanka Trump went through a punk phase in the nineties, according to her mother’s memoir Raising Trump.

“I was really into Nirvana,” Trump said in the book. “My wardrobe consisted of ripped corduroy jeans and flannel shirts. One day after school, I dyed my hair blue.”

Even so, being on the cover of an EP called “Complicit” may not be to her liking.

Asked on CBS whether she and her husband Jared Kushner were “complicit in what is happening to the White House,” Trump replied she didn’t know what the word exactly meant.

“If being complicit is wanting to be a force for good and to make a positive impact, then I’m complicit,” Trump said. “I don’t know what it means to be—complicit—but, but, you know, I hope time will prove that I have done a good job and much more importantly, that my father’s administration is the success that I know it will be.”
