Multi-platinum, GRAMMY Award-winning rock band Portugal The Man are back with new single, What, Me Worry? – out everywhere today!
Produced by Jeff Bhasker (Kanye West, Harry Styles) and Ryan Tedder (Adele, Beyoncé), What, Me Worry? marks the first official release from the band’s long-awaited 9th studio album, produced by Bhasker and due out this June.
The driving new single arrives with a cinematic official video starring the band and directed by Los Güeyes (Aaron Brown & Josué Rivas). Later this month (Feb 23), the band will appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live! for the track’s high-energy television debut.
On the inspiration behind What, Me Worry?, guitarist and lead singer John Gourley shares:
“While recording this album and hanging in LA, we got into a conversation with Jeff Bhasker and Ryan Tedder about how much we missed laughter. The last few years it’s been so easy to forget the fun in what we do. We talked about childhood memories of laughing at the world and ourselves while flipping through Mad Magazine. We missed those days and remembered that we all make music. So we took that afternoon to make a song about it.”
