VIDEO PREMIERE: Sara Bareilles Just Wants To See You Be “Brave”

Sara Bareilles has struck a chord with her new single “Brave,” which was co-written by fun. guitarist Jack Antonoff. The track is a powerful empowerment anthem meant to inspire those who feel like the odds are stacked against them. “[Brave] is totally my mantra right now,” she told our VH1 News team on the set of the video (directed by Rashida Jones!) a few weeks back. “Find out what’s scaring you, and be brave and face it.”

“Brave” is the first single off of Sara’s fourth full-length studio album, The Blessed Unrest, which is due out on July 16.
