Sara Bareilles’ latest single, “Brave,” is dedicated to all the shy ladies out there who need that little extra push.
Bareilles co-wrote the single, featured on her upcoming third album The Blessed Unrest (out July 16), with fun. guitarist Jack Antonoff; it has a bit of that same three-cheers-for-the-underdog message that his band does so well.
The beat-heavy track plays like an anthem for all the young girls out there who need a little encouragement. “Say what you want to say/And let the words fall out,” she sings. “Honestly, I want to see you be brave.”
She even gives a little advice to her young listener, “Let your words be anything but empty/Why don’t you tell them truth?”
