Her new album "Revolutionary Love," is heavily influenced by jazz. Critics are calling it "searing" and "hopeful." DiFranco joins this week's Saturday Sessions to perform "Simultaneously."

ANI DIFRANCO: I live in two different worlds. Simultaneously. The one I seem to live in, and the one that lives in me. And one is full of violence, oppression, and disrespect. And one is full of longing to breathe and to connect. Yes, my inner world is fragile, and the outer world is dumb, and this whole thing is such a hassle. Won't you wake me when it's done?

I live in two different worlds. Simultaneously. The one where we are fractured, and the one where we are free. Yeah, freedom requires safety. Yeah, freedom requires trust. Yeah, freedom requires balance in the equation of us.

Yes, my inner world fragile, and the outer world is dumb. And this whole thing is such a hassle. Won't you wake me when it's done? When it's done. When it's done. When it's done. When it's done. When it's done. When it's done.

I live in two different worlds. Simultaneously. And between them is a chasm unfolding unfathomably. And in that chasm a shadow, and in that shadow I stand. Facing towards the light.

Nothing in my hands. Yes, my inner world is fragile, and the outer world is dumb. And this whole thing is such a hassle. Won't you wake me when it's done?

When it's done. When it's done. When it's done. When it's done. When it's done. When it's done.
