"Brazen (Weep)" is the fourth and final single from Skunk Anansie's second album, Stoosh. It was released in June 1997 and reached #11 in the UK Singles Chart, making the song the band's most successful in their home country, even more successful than their commercially biggest hit "Hedonism", which reached #13. Three versions of the single were released; CD2 and CD3 were remix CDs.

Music video[edit]

The video was directed by Thomas Krygier, who directed the video for "Hedonism". The video shows the band becoming attacked in a red room (hinted to be a mental hospital). The video ends with Skin waking up in a street, implying that it was a dream after she presumably fell on the ground unconscious or run over by a car, but with no injuries.
