Amos Lee‘s “Worry No More,” is an anthem for optimism, reminding us with an easy melody and a heartwarming video that anxiety does not have to control us. Looking to further open conversations around mental health and anxiety, the single is a microcosm of the upcoming album, Dreamland, slated for a February 11 release on Dualtone Records.
“I’ve had a lot of episodes with anxiety in my life and now I feel much more equipped to handle them, partly because my family and friends have always been so supportive of me,” says Lee. “Music has also been so healing for me, and helped me to find a place in my mind that isn’t purely controlled by fear.”
Mirroring the song’s message, the music video celebrates Lee’s hometown of Philadelphia and more broadly heralds the comfort and rest that can be found at home. In the video, locals are finding reasons to smile in the face of some less-than-bright circumstances. In a nod to his upbringing, the songwriter himself is seen singing in Star Garden Park, the actual park that he grew up playing in. For a beautiful homage to the city of brotherly love and a gentle song about peace and tranquility, take a look at “Worry No More.”
