Nodding to the 48th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, Amanda Shires has reimagined her heart-wrenching reflection on reproductive autonomy – “Our Problem” – with an all-star cast, including Cyndi Lauper, Linda Perry, Angie Stone, K. Flay, Valerie June, Lilly Hiatt, Morgane Stapleton, Nona Hendryx, Sheryl Crow (on bass), Shires’ partner Jason Isbell (on guitar) and more.
“I’m proud of this song,” Shires wrote via social media after its initial, September 2020 release. “It wasn’t an easy one to write, but it was worth every tear and all the heartbreak along the way… I hope you can listen with an open heart. This song is about unconditionally supporting someone you love. This is a love song. Let’s be there for each other.”
Fans can also catch Shires and Isbell performing “Our Problem” on the next episode of The Tonight Show.
