Pale waves are set to release their new album Who Am I? on February 12th via Dirty Hit, and today they’ve shared a new single “You Don’t Own Me.”
The new track sees frontwoman Heather Baron-Gracie rejecting gender roles and the patriarchy, as she sings about the music industry boys’ club. Baron-Gracie says that “You Don’t Own Me” is “a song for women about what it’s like to be a woman in this world.”
“This song is incredibly important to me and I wanted to represent my own experiences,” Baron-Gracie continues. “I also wanted to say a f*ck you to everyone that plays by these fake delusional rules that women and gender need to fit inside a specific box.”
