Sheryl Crow’s New Music Video Calls for a ‘Woman in the White House’
“Heck, I'd write my own name in,” the Grammy-winning Stern Show veteran singsAugust 12, 2020
Sheryl Crow argues its long past time for Americans to elect a female president in the music video for the 2020 version of her song “Woman in the White House.”
Released Monday, the Peter Harding-directed clip blends together footage from women-led political protests with imagery of the Grammy-winning Stern Show veteran rocking out all over the nation’s capital. “Just look at the mess we’re in. Heck, I’d write my own name in,” Sheryl sings (above) over signs calling for gender equality and justice for Breonna Taylor.
Sheryl first dropped “Woman in the White House” in 2012. Though the lyrics haven’t changed much in eight years, Crow’s 2020 version is musically much heavier. It also came with a brand-new message. “It is time for us to show up to the polls, be seen and heard as the great leaders we are,” Crow tweeted on the eve of the song’s release.
“Woman in the White House” will soon be available as a limited-edition vinyl, Crow’s first 7-inch release in over 20 years. Get pre-sale information here.
As Stern Show fans remember, Sheryl stopped by the Stern Show in 2017 and told Howard about the early days of her career and celebrity run-ins with the likes of Prince and Michael Jackson before performing acoustic versions of some of her most beloved tunes.
