“WORRY ABOUT IT” WAS RELEASED ON OCTOBER 16TH 2020.
THE SONG IS BEAUTIFULLY REAL. THE SONG SHINES A ‘LIGHT’ ON ANXIETY, DAY-TO-DAY THOUGHTS, AND HUMAN CONDITION. THE AVERAGE PERSON LISTENING TO “WORRY ABOUT IT” CAN RELATE TO SOME OF THE SUBJECT MATTER. TELL US WHAT INSPIRED YOUR SONGWRITING FOR “WORRY ABOUT IT” AND WHAT MADE YOU DECIDE THIS WAS YOUR FIRST SINGLE?
LINDSAY + MIKE (OF LAST BIRDS):Worry About It was written several years ago during the early days of Hook & Nail but didn’t work for the trio. So, the song sat on the shelf for a long time. When we decided to start a duo project, we unearthed Worry About It.
Maybe it’s the age we are at or the state of this poor world right now, but we have both experienced crushing anxiety over the past few years. Elections, economic slumps, parenting worries, conspiracy theories, health issues – you name it, we’ve seen it or experienced it. Sometimes the worst thing you face is the dark trick your mind plays on you. We feel so fortunate to have each other to lean on and trust during uncertain times. Worry About It is a love letter to those special people that look out for you, see when you are down, and reach out to help.
Being objective about your own songs is difficult. We didn’t set out with the plan to make Worry About It our debut single. However, when we were in the first recording session with our producer, Brad Prosko, and percussionist, Jayson Brinkworth, they showed a lot of enthusiasm for the song. That’s when we knew other people would connect with it.
