Brooke Annibale Shares Video For Title Track Of Upcoming Album “Better By Now”

Indie singer/songwriter Brooke Annibale announced today her new album Better By Now will by released on September 30th through Nettwerk Music Group. A fearless new collection of songs, Brooke has emboldened her sound on Better By Now and entered a new phase of life after making significant strides in her mental-health journey by saying “I do” to her wife. She also shared the title track and official video for “Better By Now,” a stark reflection that merges personal emotions with the roller coaster of current events.

“I wrote this song in early January 2021,” stated Brooke. “We had literally just put the Christmas tree out on the curb, and I felt this terrible sentimental feeling for it. This was also the same week as the Capitol attack. We had pushed through 2020, looking at 2021 as some kind of savior, but once it arrived nothing really changed. There was still the same intensely hostile political discourse and the pandemic continued raging on. It felt like things were getting worse somehow when I hoped for it to be better by now. Reflecting on that time, it taught me that expecting a perfect external outcome will not lead to feeling better. I’ve got to do the internal work to have any kind of peace with the roller coaster of life.”

Produced by Christian “Leggy” Langdon (Joseph, Amos Lee) and Matthew E White (Natalie Prass, Dan Croll), Better By Now features 10 blossoming indie-pop tracks that Brooke describes as a“spectrum of emotions.” In her trademark layered approach, the Pittsburgh-born, Rhode Island-based artist reflects on love, anxiety, depression, and how two seemingly opposing forces can exist at once. “The album is basically half about falling in love and half about mental health.”
