“‘Don’t Worry Baby’ is definitely one of the most iconic love songs,” Rachel Fannan said of her soothing rearrangement of the instantly recognizable song. “With the outcome of the election and how tumultuous the campaign season was, I think it’s so important for people to show each other care right now. A delicate song or long hug can really pick someone up. We need compassion just as much as we need action and awareness.”
Launched on International Women’s Day, Instant Love aims to empower female artists who are unafraid of breaking the boundaries of the status quo, highlight women’s unique voices and perspectives, and kickstart a dialogue about unity, creativity and celebration of the power of love between women, mothers, sisters, friends, lovers and everything in between. In partnership with The Orchard, Instant Love will release a new song every two weeks with an impactful female vocalist from across genres alongside original artwork by Rebecca Morehiser.
