Keith Urban released a new and powerful single, “Female” today. The song was first teased earlier this week on Instagram, but we had no idea how powerful the song would be. In a time where women are trying to voice their struggles against sexual harassment and equality, Keith takes a stand for their honor, and as a father of two young girls, it means so much.
When someone laughs and implies she asked for it,
Just because she was wearing a skirt,
Oh, is that how it works?
When somebody talks about ‘It was Adam first’,
does that make you second best
Or did He save the best for last?
DAMN. Coming from a man. It takes on a whole new meaning.
Sister, shoulder, daughter, lover
Healer, broken halo, mother
Nature, fire, suit of armor
Soul survivor, holy water,
Secret keeper, fortune teller
Virgin Mary, scarlet letter
technicolor, river wild
Baby girl, woman child
Take a listen and tell us what you think. And yes, we do believe that is his wife, Nicole Kidman, singing background vocals.
