We’ve been intrigued about the track since she mentioned teaming up with Linda Perry again so we’re super excited to hear “Medicine Man” — especially so soon and for a great cause.
In a new interview with Golderby, Hall of Fame songwriter Linda Perry shared that she and her team have been working with Gwen on a track for the upcoming soundtrack for Served Like a Girl, a “documentary follows five women who compete in the Ms. Veteran America contest, a fundraising event for homeless female vets.” The documentary premiered last month and was directed by Lysa Heslov. The most notable thing about the project is that proceeds from the soundtrack’s sales will benefit Final Salute, a charity that helps female veterans and that all artists and participants on the project are not receiving compensation for their contributions.
Gwen collaborated with Linda Perry on her debut solo single “What You Waiting For?” so we’re excited to hear what they are working on together. The article also mentions Christina Aguilera, Pink, Lykke Li and Natasha Bedingfield as contributors to the upcoming soundtrack.
