Brittany Howard Joins Becca Mancari on New Single ‘Don’t Even Worry’

    Becca Mancari has shared ‘Don’t Even Worry’, a new single from their upcoming album Left Hand – out August 25 via Captured Tracks. Following ‘Over and Over’ featuring Julien Baker, the track was written with Mancari’s friend and fellow Bermuda Triangle bandmate, Brittany Howard, who also provided additional production, backing vocals, guitar, keys, sub bass, and percussion. Check out director Sophia Matinazad‘s video for it below.

    “‘Don’t Even Worry’ started as two best friends hanging out, exploring what it would be like to write and produce a song together,” Mancari explained in a statement. “After a night of simply enjoying whatever flowed out, Brittany sent me a 1-minute instrumental track that I started building melodies and words over. As I sat with the music, I kept hearing this phrase, ‘Don’t even worry, I got you!’”

    Mancari continued, “This song, to me, is an anthem of the deep bond of friendship that Brittany and I have; she is my chosen family who has been with me every step of the way in my musical journey, but more importantly my life. This song is about underrepresented people who literally say to each other: ‘Hey, I know that the world often says it’s not made for us, and I know that this weight can be too heavy sometimes, but when you’re down and feel lost I will carry you through it, and vice versa, because we don’t give up on each other, and I got you.’”

    Howard added: “It’s wonderful to announce that Becca Mancari and I have released ‘Don’t Even Worry’. Becca is my dearest friend (and 1/3 of our project Bermuda Triangle) and I’m so proud to see them shine in all of their glory. This song is to all the friends we consider family. To our ride or dies! To the ones that see us, protect us, cry with us, laugh with us. To the ones who celebrate the highs and cushion the lows with us. To the ones who see us shining in the dark. To the friends that love us at our best and worst! I’m just so grateful I get to create music and throw it out into the world with you!”
