LETTER FROM MILCK:

Hi, friends and family. Hope everyone is doing well during these unpredictable times. In light of the Harvey Weinstein scandals sparking a massive movement of women and survivors speaking out against sexual assault, I find myself in awe and moved to my core. Since the age of 14 I’ve survived several acts of sexual assault. For years, I blamed myself and secretly carried the shame. When I did realize it wasn’t my fault and that I deserve to heal, I wrote a song called “Quiet,” which went viral after I sang it with a choir on the streets @ the D.C. Women’s March.

Since then I have teamed up with Atlantic Records to create a hopeful, new version that incorporates survivors singing with me. I’ve seen this song help survivors speak out after the Women’s March, and I believe that the new version has the power to encourage and empower all those thinking of coming forward at this time.

Even though I was planning to release this new version of “Quiet” in January, I believe the movement is happening now, and I want to support those breaking the silence by releasing “Quiet” early. I’m deeply moved Julie Greenwald @ Atlantic is standing beside me through this change of plan. She understands that it’s my gesture of support & encouragement to all the survivors rising. It’s my musical #METOO.

I hope you’ll listen and consider standing with us as well. Thank you so much for reading!!

put on your face

know your place

shut up and smile

don’t spread your legs

I could do that

But no one knows me no one ever will

if I don’t say something, if I just lie still

Would I be that monster, scare them all away

If I let the-em hear what I have to say

I can’t keep quiet, no oh oh oh oh oh oh

I can’t keep quiet, no oh oh oh oh oh oh

A one woman riot, oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

I can’t keep quiet

For anyone

Anymore

Cuz no one knows me no one ever will

if I don’t say something, take that dry blue pill

they may see that monster, they may run away

But I have to do this, do it anyway

I can’t keep quiet, no oh oh oh oh oh oh

I can’t keep quiet, no oh oh oh oh oh oh

A one woman riot, oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

Oh I can’t keep quiet

Let it out Let it out

Let it out now

There’ll be someone who understands

Let it out Let it out

Let it out now

Must be someone who’ll understand

Let it out Let it out

Let it out now

There’ll be someone who understands

Let it out Let it out

Let it out now

I can’t keep quiet
