Amanda Palmer Addresses Harvey Weinstein with New Song “Mr. Weinstein Will See You Now”

A Collaboration with Jasmine Power

May 25, 2018 Bookmark and Share


Sometimes timing is everything. Amanda Palmer has teamed up with Welsh singer/songwriter Jasmine Power for a new song "Mr. Weinstein Will See You Now." As its title suggests, it addresses the disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. It was shared earlier this week, but the song is getting renewed attention as earlier today Weinstein turned himself into the New York City police and was arrested on rape charges (he's now out on bail). Palmer had this to say about the song in a new statement released today: "It feels like true poetic justice to see the timing of this song release collide with the news of these women seeing actual literal justice."

Palmer and Power met at a dinner party and despite never hearing each other's music before, they entered the studio only three days later to create new music, partly inspired by the #MeToo movement. British film-music arranger Sketch & Dodds later added strings and orchestration.

Palmer had this to say about the song in a press release: "It doesn't sound like anything I've ever made before, it's almost a mini piece of theater. I feel like we are standing on the edge of an historic precipice right now, and we are teetering towards justice not just for women, but for all people. It's not just the news about Bill Cosby, or the news about Harvey Weinstein, or the way it feels right now to be getting on a plane from London to Dublin filled with women and men wearing 'Repeal' sweaters all heading home to vote for a woman's right to choose. It's the sum of all these parts, and it's a zeitgeist of human equality that can't be put back in the bottle now that people have access to one another's stories. It's watching what happens to a rotten, oppressive system when women and finally start comparing notes, doing the math, and taking back their narratives. Let Progress Ring!"

Between now and June 30, 100% of the digital sales of the song will be donated to TimesUp, "a Legal Defense Fund that provides subsidized legal support to those who have experienced sexual harassment, assault, or abuse in the workplace."
