LA Music Review | Art, stories and advice
Upbeat and totally honest!
Budding alt-pop star BRE has returned with her newest single, “Rather Be Alone.”
Radiating girl-boss energy, the track is upbeat, dance-worthy, and liberating from beginning to end.
Written and co-produced by BRE herself, “Rather Be Alone” is about coming to the realization that it’s easier – and better – to be alone versus the alternative struggles of committing to a relationship.
Recognizing her own capabilities and independence, BRE pours all her self-worth and self-realization into the track. “Dating sucks. Dating in LA sucks. Dating in LA in your late twenties/early thirties sucks,” explains BRE. “That’s the place where ‘Rather Be Alone’ came from. After being f*ckboyed one too many times, I couldn’t help but think to myself, ‘Honestly, I’d rather be alone than deal with this BS!’

I wrote the song in my Notes app on my phone in maybe 30 minutes, and now here we are!”
Building on the letting-go energy the song implies are energizing electric guitar riffs and a booming beat. Co-produced with Pascal Pahl and engineered by Paul Redel (Gayle, ZZ Ward) and Dale Becker (Khalid, Doja Cat, Justin Bieber), the track has fans engaged, up on their feet, and singing along.
BRE takes the crown when it comes to empowering girl-boss anthems. “Rather Be Alone” has further confirmed BRE’s niche in making alt-pop hits and helping her fans realize their power and worth.
