TheHighwomen—a new collaborative movement formed by Brandi Carlile, Natalie Hemby, Maren Morris and Amanda Shires—officially launches today with the release of the group’s debut single, “Redesigning Women.” Watch the official music video HERE.

Of the track, Hemby shares, “‘Redesigning Women’ is the life most women are living today. We juggle so much in 24 hours and I wanted to write a song that reflected the goodness, the madness and the hilarity of it all.”
The single is the first unveiled from collective’s highly anticipated self-titled debut album, produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb, which will be releasedSeptember 6 on Low Country Sound/Elektra Records. Brand new merchandise is now available through exclusive pre-order bundles via The Highwomen’s official webstore. $4 from each bundle sale will be donated to She Is The Music—a nonprofit organization committed to driving inclusivity and equality for women in music with the goal of transforming the industry’s landscape.

In celebration of the release, The Highwomen will make their live debut at Newport Folk Festival next Friday, July 26. This landmark performance is their only confirmed full concert to date.
“Anyone can be a Highwoman,” Carlile notes. “It’s about banding together, abandoning as much ego as humanly possible, holding one another up and amplifying other women every chance we get. Shoulder to shoulder. One push, one love.”
