Inspired by a Women’s March she attended last weekend, Carole King was moved to share a previously unreleased version of her song, “One Small Voice”. King marched with 29 others in a snowstorm in Stanley, Idaho, a town with a population of 63.
“I’ve never stopped believing that one small voice plus millions of other small voices is exactly how we change the world,” she wrote in a piece posted to The Huffington Post. In addition to the song, the article also includes a scan of King’s handwritten lyrics.
Though initially released on 1983’s Speeding Time, King re-recorded “One Small Voice” without synthesizers in the early 2000s, but had forgotten about it before last weekend.
“I’m making the updated recording of ‘One Small Voice’ available to everyone,” she says, “because it will take the strength and persistence of many small voices to overcome the lies of the loudest voice with our message of truth, dignity, and decency.”
