Sara Bareilles Premieres New Song “Brave,” Announces ‘The Blessed Unrest’ Album

Sara Bareilles fans, prepare for your kaleidoscope hearts to skip a beat or two, as the queen of radio-friendly piano pop has returned with brand new single “Brave.” The song was co-penned by fun.‘s Jack Antanoff, and as such, doesn’t sound dissimilar from the Grammy-winning band’s anthem-like hits (or, for that matter, frontman Nate Ruess‘ duet with Pink, “Just Give Me A Reason”).

“Brave” hits iTunes on April 23, and serves as the first offering from Bareilles’ third LP The Blessed Unrest, which has a July 16 release date. Catch the lyric video for the uplifting self-empowerment song above, and check out the dates for Sara’s upcoming acoustic Brave Enough Tour below.
