Amanda Palmer Releases “Mr. Weinstein Will See You Now” Single

Purchase the powerful track and contribute to Times Up.

The ever-resourceful Amanda Palmer has struck again, this time with a remarkably moving – and unsettling – new single about Harvey Weinstein. “Mr. Weinstein Will See You Now” is a collaboration between Palmer and Jasmine Power, and while the disgraced movie mogul, who is currently accused of rape in the state of New York, isn’t mentioned specifically by name in the 6-minute song’s lyrics, it wasn’t exactly necessary that he be namechecked in the title, so pointed are those lyrics, which are positioned as a kind of statement-response back and forth between the two singers:

Palmer sings:
“your seven hundredth bedroom
the waiter brings the bill
you came here dressed for battle
you knew damn well.
the sharpening of axes
the fat man rings a bell…”

Then Power responds:
“don’t touch me
i’m not here to help”

The song is available at Palmer’s Bandcamp page for a minimum $1 donation, but consider giving more since 100% of proceeds to to the Time’s Up legal defense fund. Palmer and Power put the material together via a Patreon crowdfunding campaign.
