LeAnn Rimes has joined forces with Mickey Guyton and Sheila E. for a powerful new anthemic song “The Wild.”
The song represents a preview of Rimes’ upcoming album, God’s Work, which Thirty Tigers will release on September 16.
“My new album as a whole looks at the duality of life, the light and the dark, and I believe that is most apparent in ‘the wild,'” Rimes said in a statement. “The song is about the patriarchal world that has shaped us as a society, especially women . the silencing and fracturing of ourselves in order to fit into the pretty and polite societal box, throughout generations.”
“It’s a battle cry to unite women to reclaim every part of our truest nature and no longer allow our wild, our ‘unholy’ to be ignored, shamed and rejected. It is full of rage . the kind of rage that calls us home. Rage, that ignites change and says, ‘I have been here all along, waiting for you to return to your wholeness.’ And I couldn’t be more excited to have such strong, kindhearted, ‘wild’ women featured alongside me. Mickey Guyton and Sheila E. helped make this track come alive,” Rimes said, referring to Guyton who sings along with her, and Sheila E., who is on drums.
The country music artist-turned-pop singer told CNN that she wrote the song in early 2020. Rimes said “The Wild” is also a protest anthem against the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe vs. Wade, which upheld a woman’s constitutional right to an abortion.
