Amanda Shires – “The Problem” (Feat. Jason Isbell)

Amanda Shires has released a new song, “The Problem,” to coincide with International Safe Abortion Day, with proceeds going to the Yellowhammer Fund, an organization dedicated to reproductive justice in Alabama and the deep South. “The Problem” is a duet with Shires’ husband Jason Isbell and they trade lines back-and-forth before coming together in the chorus: “And all I could think to say was/ “Everything’s going to be okay/ It’s going to be alright I’m on your side.”

“This song is about making tough decisions and not having to go it alone,” Shires said in a press release. Isbell added: “To me, ‘The Problem’ is a song about supporting someone you love through a difficult time. It’s about helping without exerting your own will. I support a woman’s right to choose, and I know these choices are never easy.”
