Eagles bassist Timothy B. Schmit has shared his new song, “Cross That Line.”
“Cross That Line” was jointly produced by Schmit and Jeff Peters.
The song “addresses the MeToo Movement along with Donald Trump‘s ego,” according to Schmit.
“He made promises of money and fame. As he pulled down that blind/Then it finally happened, he met his match and he crossed that line,” Schmit sings in the first verse, in apparent reference to a Harvey Weinstein-like movie mogul.
The second verse seemingly relates to Trump, with Schmit singing, “He’s got a giant ego that barely fits. In his house all painted white/He don’t listen to no one ‘Cuz he is always right.”
“I’ve had this song in my back pocket for almost a year now, and I’m not sure why I’ve waited so long to release it,” Schmit said in a statement.
He added, “Then it became clear to me about two weeks ago that now is, indeed, the time. There is nothing else I can say about this piece other than… the song speaks for itself.”
