Alt-pop artist BRE has released her third single, “IDNTBR,” or “I Don’t Need to Be Right,” a powerful pop-rock track that exudes boldness and the willingness to take a step back and examine the problem. “IDNTBR” is a realization of the fact that it is often better to just be the bigger person in an argument in order to build lasting relationships. “This song is about picking your battles and remembering what’s most important when in a disagreement – fighting the problem and not each other,” BRE states.
Starting off “IDNTBR,” BRE admits her faults and fury, stating, “I admit it, I was wrong, didn’t know what I was saying, guess I took it too far.” With striking, compelling lyricism and astonishing production, “IDNTBR” is about taking relationships into account before “winning the argument.” Co-produced by BRE and Pascal Pahl, mastered by Grammy nominee Dale Becker (Khalid, Doja Cat, Justin Bieber), and engineered by Paul Redel (Gayle, ZZ Ward), the single is an uproar of confidence, as well as compassion. Focusing on the song’s relationship aspect, BRE explains, “’IDNTBR’ (or I Don’t Need to Be Right) is a song about valuing your relationships more than your need to win an argument. Something I’ve learned over the years is that no matter how good it feels in the moment to win a fight or say ‘I told you so!’, the lasting damage it does to your relationship doesn’t make it worth it.” The catchy alt-pop/rock single follows BRE’s protest anthem, “The Revolution,” released in October as a response to the overturning of Roe V Wade and the current threat to women’s rights around the world.
Since releasing her debut album at 16 under the name ‘Breanna Lynn,’ BRE has greatly enhanced her sound and writing style over the past decade, evolving her music into something exhilarating and empowering. In addition to making her own music, BRE works professionally as a dueling piano bar player, where she brings her mystifying, resounding style to audiences around the globe.
