We are excited to share ‘Seek Asylum From Myself,’ the latest single by Brett Newski, which finds the singer-songwriter diving “into the battles in one's own head and finding the balance between medication and just riding out the storm.” You can check it out below or on Spotify

“Feeling guilty about being sad is a big problem in today's instagram culture” continues Newski. “The fact of the matter is that it's totally normal to be sad sometimes. It's part of being a person. "It's ok to be sad. It's ok to be angry. No need to feel guilty, person.”

"Just like your heart attacks you, your brain can attack you too" says Newski, whose recent book It's Hard to be a Person makes fun of his own anxieties and dives into mental health boosts for getting out of your own brain. In actuality, 99% of the "worries" we create for ourselves are self-inflicted unnecessarily. As Newski states in the song's finale, "most of my worries are actually just comedy."

Brett Newski is an alternative songwriter, illustrator and podcaster based in Milwaukee, WI, USA. He has been featured on Rolling Stone, NPR, American Songwriter, SiriusXM, Boston Globe, and Paste. Newski has played alongside acts like Pixies, Violent Femmes, Courtney Barnett, Manchester Orchestra, Better than Ezra & New Pornographers.
