Die Neuseeländerin Benee nahm mit großen Hype-Wellen und ihrem Debütalbum Hey u x kurzerhand den Newcomer-Thron im Pandemie-Jahr 2020 ein – nun kehrt sie schon mit einer ersten neuen Single zurück, die sie passenderweise am World Mental Health Day ankündigte. Denn auf Doesn’t Matter behandelt sie ihre eigenen mentalen Struggles zu verträumten musikalischen Bett – Benee selbst sagt darüber: “It seems like a very long time since I’ve released any music. This year has been very difficult for me and many other people, and I’ve had times that I’ve really felt my lowest. I wrote ‘Doesn’t Matter’ during one of these periods when I felt truly overwhelmed, anxious, and stuck. I was diagnosed with OCD, which actually helped me understand myself better. This song ponders on what it would be like to feel truly carefree and how much easier life would be. Sometimes, it’s hard for people who don’t suffer from anxiety or depression to really understand what it’s like for us. People telling you not to worry or saying ‘It doesn’t matter’ don’t understand that it’s not that simple. Having had help to learn how to deal with my own anxiety and depression, I want others to know that there is a way through.”
