Hannah Diamond returns with “True”

It’s the first new single from the PC Music artist in two years.

Hannah Diamond’s been out of the limelight for about two years now, but late last week she made her return with a heartbreaking new single, “True.”

The burnished synths that the British artist marshalled in the past for her hyper-artificial, undeniably catchy pop songs are somewhat muted for “True,” which finds Diamond disillusioned and in despair. “No epiphanies / No believe-in-mes / No more chances wasted on nobodies,” she sings. “Every time you lie / You become that guy / There’s no point / There’s no time / Maybe you’ll treat her right.”

The PC Music artist—and labelmate of AG Cook and SOPHIE—has dubbed the song the “ultimate emo HD power ballad.” It’s also a deliberate departure from Diamond’s previous material, specifically the last single she released in 2016: “It’s really about the fantasy of my last single ‘Make Believe’ crumbling before my eyes, and the realization that this thing that I thought was true love really wasn’t what I was projecting it to be in my mind,” she said in a statement.


According to Stereogum, Diamond will return with a new ten-track album titled Reflections next year. Listen to “True” below:
