The impending demise of the Adélie penguins. The death of composer Henryk Górecki. The bombing of South Korea. The house arrest of Nobel Peace Prize winner Liu Xiaobo. Alarming increases in human trafficking and sexual slavery. Tsunami in Chile. Oil spills. The flood in Pakistan.

“Be Brave,” the first video from My Brightest Diamond’s third and forthcoming album All Things Will Unwind, is frontwoman Shara Worden’s response to a world unwinding. It is her rain dance, her attempt to influence and change things seemingly outside her control. But it’s also an inner dialogue, Shara to Shara, a blistering plea/lecture/pep talk to get her gameface on and do something tangible and real about injustice - including singing and dancing.

“In November,” says Worden, “the great composer Gorecki died and I remember that weekend clearly, listening to the work and reading the lyrics in his beautiful Symphony No. 3, the lament of a mother who has lost her son in war. This was the context in which I started writing [‘Be Brave’].”

Prefuse 73 provides a remix of "Be Brave" that expands the song's foundation into a an echoed chamber, like a parade through labyrinthian caves.
