Sara Bareilles Inspires Random Acts of Dance in 'Brave' Video

Sara Bareilles - Brave

"I want to see you be brave!" sings Sara Bareilles on her new single "Brave," and sometimes, courage manifests itself in the form of shameless, altogether goofy dance moves.

The music video for "Brave," released on Tuesday (May 14), shows the singer-songwriter belting out her new tune while random folks bust a move in libraries, gyms and shopping malls. Soon enough, the other dancers join the polka-dot-clad Bareilles and flaunt some inspired choreography; smiles are induced throughout.

"Brave" has sold 99,000 downloads, according to Nielsen SoundScan, and debuted at No. 61 on last week's Hot 100 chart. The song -- co-written by fun.'s Jack Antonoff -- leads Bareilles' third studio album, "The Blessed Unrest," which is due out on July 16 through Epic.

Can't wait for Bareilles' new album? Check out this backstage video of Bareilles on her spring tour, in the first installment of's "On The Road" video series.
