Over the course of the last year, JC Stewart has made the kind of progress that makes him a hot tip for 2021. He has already achieved a growing following of 3.1 million monthly listeners at Spotify, plus extensive airplay across Radio 1Radio 2Capital and Kiss. And he’s set to make an immediate impact on the year ahead as she shares his new single ‘Break My Heart’, which he co-wrote with Niall Horan. It’s accompanied by an official video which was directed by Charlie Sarsfield (StormzyDermot Kennedy), who also directed the video for JC’s previous single ‘I Need You To Hate Me’.
If you think you know JC from his Professional Sadboy favourites ‘I Need You To Hate Me’ and ‘Lying That You Love Me’, think again. ‘Break My Heart’ a melodic firecracker of exuberant alt-pop energy. His gift for exploring the nuances of relationships remains a key strength, this time with a tale of a romance that has to be all or nothing.   Listen HERE.
“‘Break My Heart’ is big, fast and fun,” says JC“It’s about someone who can catch you so off guard that they can ruin a city for you and tear your life apart. But sometimes that can be addicting.”
That story is extended in the accompanying video. Matching the song’s bursts of energy with rapid fire cuts and a cinematic sheen, the video features JC as one-half of a couple who share an erratic relationship. It switches between a whirlwind of ups and downs: the joy of hitting the open road and blissed out moment home alone, juxtaposed with awkward silences and icy stares. Watch the official video HERE.
‘Break My Heart’ also represents JC’s first ever vinyl release. The 7” vinyl is packaged with a personally signed poster and features an acoustic version of ‘Break My Heart’ on the b-side. It’s available here.
