Syd Announces New Album, Share Lead Single “Could You Break A Heart” Featuring Lucky Daye

GRAMMY-nominated singer, songwriter, producer, and engineer Syd has announced her sophomore album, Broken Hearts Club, set for release April 8th, 2022 via Columbia Records.  Performed, co-written and co-produced by Syd herself, Broken Hearts Club,the LP chronicles the ebbs and flows of a relationship from beginning to end and features collaborations with Kehlani, Smino, & Lucky Daye as well as additional production from Grammy-winning producers Troy Taylor (Whitney Houston), G Koop (Migos, Drake) and Darkchild (Mary J Blige, Beyonce). A tracklisting for the album is below, as well as the record’s cover art. 

Syd has also unveiled the newest single from Broken Hearts Club, an incredible track called “Could You Break A Heart.”   The song features butter-smooth vocals from Lucky Daye alongside Syd’s, while the lyrics detail her apprehension in trusting a new relationship.  “Could You Break A Heart” follows the critically-acclaimed songs “Missing Out,” “Fast Car,” and “Right Track,” all of which were released as stand-alone singles last year. 

About the album Syd said, “The album is about a relationship I had that ended in my first real broken heart. It almost felt like I joined a club because all of my friends went through similar experiences. It was like a rite of passage. I started writing the album on the relationship when I was in love. You’re really getting the whole journey from the beginning to the end. I want people to find it beautiful. It’s super vulnerable, sentimental, and it’s soft. There’s touching moments and a couple of dark moments.”

Since her 2017 solo debut, Fin, Syd has continued to be a major cultural force over the last few years, hardly resting on her laurels.  Her GRAMMY-nominated band, THE INTERNET, released a critically acclaimed fourth album, Hive Mind; she appeared in Drake’s video for “Nice For What;” she wrote a song for Beyonce called “Otherside,” on the Lion King Soundtrack; she collaborated with Zayn, Lil Uzi Vert, Kehlani, Disclosure, Kelly Rowland, and Charlotte Day Wilson; she built a recording studio in her home of Los Angeles; she appeared in a Louis Vuitton ad at Virgil Abloh’s behest; she worked alongside Valentino’s head designer Pierpaolo Piccioli at Paris Fashion Week; she shot an Adidas campaign with Pharrell.  Throughout it all, she has remained a master of sensual, future-forward R&B songs, writing, producing, and engineering all of her own work.

That’s just Syd the artist; Syd the entrepreneur started and ran a studio in LA, as well as a charity that services Los Angeles youth. She also works closely with tech and product entrepreneurs on new ventures.  These include Sapere Wines, a black/female run and co-founded boutique wine company making sparkling rosé in Napa, as well as being a founding member of mediation and wellness DAO $UEMSUniverse Eaters Meditation Society. This tight-knit collective of artists and creatives are leveraging Web3 tools to further mental wellness.
