Since releasing Love Song back in 2007, Sara Bareilles has been hovering barely beneath the radar with a string of well-received songs that have gone mostly ignored by radio stations. In that respect, here’s her latest video for “Brave,” a great song that will probably go neglected by most radio and TV stations.
Written by Bareilles and Fun’s Jack Antonoff, it was apparently inspired by Bareilles watching one of her friends struggle to come out of the closet. In all fairness, nothing will help you come out of the closet like a mainstream pop artist singing a song about it for everyone to hear. Takes a lot of the pressure off you, really.
