Violinist and yMusic co-founder Rob Mooses shared “I Bend but Never Break” (feat, Brittany Howard), the lead single from his upcoming Inflorescence EP due for release in August. The exciting project will also include further features from Bon Iver, Phoebe Bridgers, Sara Bareilles, and Emily King.

Moose shared a statement about his new collaboration with Brittany Howard: “I wrote ‘I Bend but Never Break’ during a trying time where I felt like all I could do was ask for strength externally,” 

Brittany Howard remarked in a statement. “I felt tapped out. The world can feel out of control sometimes and terrifying. I wanted to imagine the song as a lifeline to what goodness and positivity exists during those feelings of overwhelm.”

“I’ve only worked on a handful of songs with Brittany, but she’s made an outsize impact on my artistry,” Moose added. “When the opportunity arose to make my own artist project, I knew Brittany had to be a part of it.”
