Irish global star JC Stewart returns with a brand new alt-pop single ‘Break My Heart’ featured along with an official video
JC Stewart is 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 (Stormzy, DermotKennedy), who also directed the video for JC’s previous single ‘I Need You To Hate Me’.
The new single ‘Break My Heart’ is 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.
JC Stewart shares about the new single, “‘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.”
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.
‘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.
JC reached a new audience with his 220 Kid collab ‘Too Many Nights’. His quarantine-themed parody of the ‘Friends’ theme also went viral with the help of Jennifer Aniston, as it raced to over 5 million views and resulted in him appearing on ‘Good Morning America’.
The young Northern Irish musician crafts songs which somehow both feel timeless and contemporary, and tell stories that reflect the day-to-day experiences of his generation. While he’s an exemplary songwriter, as further evidenced by co-writing ‘Hollywood’ from Lewis Capaldi’s smash hit debut album, his interviews and social media demonstrate a self-deprecating sense of humour. That combination of emotive, addictive songs delivered by a big personality shines through at his live shows, which we’ll hopefully be seeing a lot more of as the year progresses.
