Acclaimed singer/songwriter Sheryl Crow released a reimagined take on her 2012 b-side, “Woman In The White House.” Raging guitars and powerful drums give the song an urgency and new relevancy ahead of the 2020 election. With Democratic Presidential Nominee Joe Biden committing to a woman running mate, the song takes on added meaning as people await the announcement of his vice presidential pick.
The outspoken Grammy Award winning artist supports the commitment in her straightforward lyrics:
“It’s time to clean up Capitol Hill/With a shovel and a pair of high heels/We’ve seen what the good ol’ boys can do/Now it’s our turn to take a shot/Don’t you think it’s time we put a woman in the White House/With a whole new attitude/We could use a little female common sense/Down on Pennsylvania Avenue/After 230-something years of waiting/It’s way past overdue.”
“When I first recorded this song eight years ago, I was hopeful that we, as a nation, would seize the moment and put a Woman in the White House,” Crow says of the track. “That did not happen – but our movement of strength grows as we take to the streets and make our voices heard. We must not stop there. It is time for us to show up to the polls, be seen and heard as the great leaders we are.”
The song, produced by Steve Jordan, is available everywhere now.
