Schmaltzy love songs, begone. Finally there’s a song for all the single people out there. If you’re not married or don’t have a significant other, you’re sometimes made to feel lesser than. Well, Lady Antebellum is about to change all that with the release of their new single, “Heart Break.”
A sure-fire standout in a crowded field of sentimental love songs, this uptempo offering—written by Jesse Frasure, Nicolle Galyon, Dave Haywood, Charles Kelley and Hillary Scott— is a smart, fresh take on not being in love. “Heart Break” is title track and second single from the trio’s latest album.
Being in relationship is not always sunshine and roses and sometimes you just need time alone to get to know yourself better. We all just need a little break from time to time.
“A while ago I had written down the lyrics ‘heart break summer’ with the idea of what its like to detox from relationships for awhile,” said Dave Haywood. “Once we all got in the room together, it really evolved into a these identifiable lyrics that I think anyone can relate too. “
With lyrics like this, being alone sounds pretty darn good.
“I think it’s time to take a heart break, out late / Solo on a Saturday night / Going out without a plus one, I’m done
Falling over pickup lines / I’m single for the summer, I won’t rebound / One lover to another, or be tied down / I’m sleeping like a queen in a California king I made (I made, I made) / I think it’s time to take a heart break / I think it’s time to take a heart break,” Hillary sings in the chorus.
Listen to Lady Antebellum’s newest hit (mark my words).
