Break-ups and failed relationships don’t have to be bad things. Just ask Hunter Hayes, who finds the silver lining on his new song, “Heartbreak.”
The bouncy, country pop track puts a spin on the well-worn break-up narrative, and turns it into an optimistic love song. “Another bad first date (Check) / Another ‘nothing left to say’ (Check) / What I mean is, the way I see it / I’m one heartbreak closer to you, you,” he sings to a future love.
“It’s a song about freedom. It’s a song about true honest happiness and love and how there is love for everyone,” Hayes said in a statement. “Not only are you worthy of being loved but there is somebody out there who loves you even though they haven’t met you.”
