NEW YORK, NY (July 31, 2020) – 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
Of the song, Crow says, “When I first recorded this song 8 years ago, I was hopeful that we, as a nation, would seize the moment and put a Woman in the White House. 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.”
