Breathe The Same, released last year. Written by BAER herself and produced by her longtime collaborators Tyzo Bloom and Roland Greco, "What Does It Matter" in soothing slice of R&B-infused electro-pop perfection which sees BAER take both her vocal and lyrical prowess to new levels as she elegantly coos: "When did we lose our innocent youth, warped and fucked by all the rules." The single also serves as the first taste of her forthcoming second EP, The Pink Formosa.

Speaking on the track, BAER says:
"Musically and sonically, this song is an introduction to the rest of the EP. I actually started writing this song when I took a solo trip to Ojai last summer. I was hiking up Meditation Mount, and when I reached the top and stared down at the vast scenery, with all these grand mountains and fields of green, I just had this sudden humbling realization that we are all part of something that is so much bigger than us, and that no matter what happens today, or tomorrow, or what happened five years ago, everything keeps moving and karma will eventually solve everything. So often, we focus our energy on the smallest, pettiest details and miss out on what’s really important in life. When did we stop loving? When did we stop believing, stop dreaming? I hope this song will urge people to live their best, to their fullest potential, so we all move the world in a positive direction. "
