JC STEWART SHARES THE NEW SINGLE ‘BREAK MY HEART’ – WATCH THE OFFICIAL VIDEO HERE

“He’s got big tunes and his heart on his sleeve… ready for arena crowds.” – Evening Standard
 
“Stewart excels at keening, heart-on-sleeve balladry that mixes raw emotion with classic pop chord progressions and a voice of angelic purity.” – Sunday Times Culture
 
“JC Stewart’s own ascent continues.” – Wonderland
 
“JC Stewart is in the midst of a breakthrough.” – Notion
 
“Supremely emotional.” – Clash 
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.
 
Last year, he followed a succession of attention-grabbing tracks with his debut EP ‘When The Light Hits The Room’, which was co-written with the BRIT / Ivor Novello winner Tom Odell and produced by the Grammy-nominated Two Inch Punch (Rex Orange CountySam SmithRag N Bone Man). JC then 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.
