Fiona Apple Debuts Anti-Trump Song 'Tiny Hands' in Honor of Women's March
Fiona Apple has made her feelings about president-elect Donald Trump very clear, again, releasing the scathing minute-long "Tiny Hands" in advance of this weekend's Women's March protests in Washington and around the nation. The song, composed with Michael Whalen, features the chant "we don't want your tiny hands anywhere near our underpants" over programmed, martial drums.
The tracks is a sequel of sorts to Apple's holiday tune "Trump's Nuts Roasting on an Open Fire," which also took swings at the New York billionaire who will be inaugurated on Friday (Jan. 20). "This is the chant that Fiona Apple created for the 'Women’s March' in Washington, DC January 21st, 2017. She recorded it on a phone. m-Dub created the track and the mix," reads the Soundcloud page for the track, which opens with the former Celebrity Apprentice host's famously profane Access Hollywood brag about grabbing women's private parts without permission.
Apple -- who hasn't released a new album since 2012's The Idler Wheel... has been back in the public eye lately courtesy of her vehement anti-Trump stance, performing "Trump's Nuts" live at the "We Rock with Standing Rock" benefit concert in Los Angeles in December. Officials in the nation's capital are expecting more than 200,000 women to show up for the Women's March on Saturday (Jan. 21), with more than 600 sister marches planned around the nation and the world in Albania, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, India, Iraq, Kenya, New Zealand, South Africa and Sweden, among other nations.
Apple's song is the latest in a raft of anti-Trump tunes that released over the past few weeks, including protest anthems from Anohni and CocoRosie and a series entitled "Our First 100 Days," featuring songs from The Mountain Goats, How to Dress Well, Mitski, Bully, PWR BTTM, Will Oldham, Minus the Bear, Toro Y Moi and others that feature songs supporting causes that could be threatened by a Trump administration. Beginning at noon on Friday the songs will be available for unlimited streaming and download for a minimum contribution of $30.
