Emily Haines of Metric Dedicates New Song 'Statuette' to the 'Courageous' Women Speaking Out Against Sexual Harassment

Best known as the lead singer of alt-rock veterans Metric, Emily Haines is branching out on her own with a solo album, entitled Choir of the Mind. Haines stopped by the Billboard offices to perform a few songs from Choir of the Mind and kicked things off with a special track, "Statuette."

"It feels kind of timely for the crazy shift of power that seems to be happening in the world right now hopefully," Haines said in her introduction of the song. "I want to dedicate it to all these women who are finding the strength and courage to face and deal with and address the world they've forced to live in professionally."

She adds that she is "excited" about a possible different climate in the industry because of these women stepping forward.
