The Highwomen Release Debut Single & Video for “Redesigning Women” [Watch]

The Highwomen—Brandi Carlile, Amanda Shires, Maren Morris and Natalie Hemby—released their first single, “Redesigning Women,” from their upcoming self-titled album, which is slated to drop on Sept. 6.

The new track, which was penned by Natalie and Rodney Clawson, was produced by Dave Cobb.

“‘Redesigning Women’ is the life most women are living today,” says Natalie. “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 supergroup’s name is a play on The Highwaymen—a supergroup that featured Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings.

On their upcoming debut album, The Highwomen are joined by several guest musicians, vocalists and songwriters. The project features Sheryl Crow (background vocals, bass), Yola (vocals, background vocals), Cobb (acoustic/electric guitar), Jason Isbell (acoustic/electric guitar), Phil Hanseroth (bass, background vocals), Tim Hanseroth (guitar, background vocals), Chris Powell (drums) and Peter Levin (piano and keyboards) with songs written by Carlile, Hemby, Morris, Shires, Isbell, the Hanseroth twins, Rodney Clawson, Lori McKenna, Miranda Lambert and Ray LaMontagne among many others.

Watch the new video below, which features appearances from Lauren Alaina, Kassi Ashton, Cam, Lilly Hiatt, Wynonna Judd, Catie Offerman, Cassadee Pope, Erin Rae, Raelynn, Natalie Stovall, Tanya Tucker, Anna Vaus and Hailey Whitters.

“Redesigning Women”

Full time livin’ on a half-time schedule
Always tryin’ to make everybody feel special
Learning when to brake and when to hit the pedal
Working hard to look good ’til we die

A critical reason there’s a population
Raising our brows in a new generation
Rosie the Riveter with renovations
And always gets better with wine

Redesigning women
Running the world while we’re cleaning up the kitchen
Making bank, shaking hands, driving 80
Trying to get home just to feed the baby
Skipping the bread for the butter
Changing our minds like we change our hair color
Ever since the beginnin’ we been redesigning women

Pullin’ up the floors and changing out the curtains
Some of us are saints and some of us are surgeons
Made in God’s image, just a better version
And breaking every Jell-O mold
And when we love someone we take ’em to heaven
And if the shoe fits we’re gonna buy 11
How we get it done we like to keep ’em guessing
But secretly we all know

Redesigning women
Running the world while we’re cleaning up the kitchen
Making bank, shaking hands, driving 80
Trying to get home just to feed the baby
Skipping the bread for the butter
Changing our minds like we change our hair color
Ever since the beginnin’ we been redesigning women

How do we do it?
How do we do it?
Making it up as we go along
How do we do it?
How do we do it?
Half way right and half way wrong

Redesigning women
Running the world while we’re cleaning up the kitchen
Making bank, shaking hands, driving 80
Trying to get home just to feed the baby
Skipping the bread for the butter
Changing our minds like we change our hair color
Ever since the beginnin’ we been redesigning women
