Keith Urban's 'Female' Stream, Lyrics, & Download - Listen to Harvey Weinstein-Inspired Track

Keith Urban set to perform new Weinstein-inspired song at CMA Awards

It's worth noting that "Female", the song's title, is a bit of a loaded term-some women find it degrading when used as a noun, as Urban does-but hey, maybe Urban didn't want to encroach on Kesha's territory by calling the song "Woman"?

The lyrics from the song include the lines: "When somebody laughs and implies that she asked for it/Just cause she was wearing a skirt/Oh is that how that works?"

On the track, Urban demonstrates his feminism by singing the chorus of "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, women shine, female". / When you hear a song that they play sayin' you run the world, do you believe it? "/ Will you live to see it?" he sings.

Most people know Kidman as more of an actress in the entertainment industry, but Urban enlisted her soothing voice to coo over the tracking of the tune to bring even more of a personal importance than the empowering message.

Kidman last month issued a statement condemning sexual harassment and assault in the workplace as mounting allegations surfaced against Weinstein.

The Hollywood heavyweight who worked with Weinstein on numerous projects including Cold Mountain, The Others, Nine and, most recently, Lion, spoke out against the misuse of power in the week after the allegations against the movie mogul surfaced.

The song was written by hitmakers Shane McAnally, Nicolle Galyon and Ross Copperman within a week of the New York Times expose on Weinstein and recorded by Urban on Halloween. "And that's the one thing we can do is write songs".

"It affected me not just as a husband but also as a father of two young girls and (as) a son", he said.

DiPiero has written songs for McEntire, George Strait, Tim McGraw and more.
