Glass streamed her solo debut song “Stillbirth” on Soundcloud yesterday (July 17), alongside a note that “all proceeds for digital purchases of this song will benefit organizations that help survivors of domestic abuse, sexual violence and incest.”
She added, "You can donate directly at donate.rainn.org or via the link on my website at www.alice-glass.com."
After tweeting out the song, Glass also posted a screenshot of a statement she had written about her own history with abuse.
“Years ago I began the process of trying to remove myself from an abusive relationship that started when I was a teenager,” she wrote. “I was talked down to, yelled at, locked into rooms and criticized daily about my abilities, my weight, my looks, my intelligence and almost every move I made."
She continued, “I want young women and young men to understand that this kind of treatment of others can happen where it might be least expected…The clarity I’ve gained since getting out of that situation has opened up my life in a way I didn’t imagine was possible."
Glass also teased a “sister song” to “Stillbirth.” Read her full statement below.
The former Crystal Castles singer isn’t the only one to speak up for abused women lately. When Brad Arnold of 3 Doors Down noticed a man pushing a woman around at a recent concert, he stopped singing mid-song to tell the aggressor to leave.
"You don’t hit a woman. You just pushed a woman out the way to get into a fight,” said the lead singer in a YouTube clip uploaded by the rock band’s guitarist Chris Henderson. “Get him the hell out of here.”
