You may have seen my attempts to ‘announce’ the release of the new single on social media … Heh! Yes the next Brave New Broken Hearts Club release is indeed Higher, a song I have been playing as part of the acoustic set that you may have heard at a house-gig or either of the nights Live At The Hemmy.
It’s not a departure by any means; if you enjoyed All I Have Is Now then you’ll enjoy this one but as for the ‘craft’ of songwriting I think it’s one of my best. If you follow me on Instagram there’ll be little edited snippets accompanying posts as we build up to release day; I’ve isolated different parts of the song, to give you a feel without giving away the song itself. Hopefully that whets your appetite and encourages you to pre-save it on Spotify!
There is always the accompanying call on socials to ‘pre-save’ and really and truly... there is no benefit to you to do so! There is to me though! The more people that pre-save it the more likelihood there is that the evil Spotify algorithm will notice the activity on release day as the song is immediately saved to your Spotify account on release day. This ’activity’ increases the chance of me gaining a place on one of Spotify’s editorial playlists, which in turn helps me get very valuable exposure and traction for the song! It’s very dry and tedious to keep asking you to do it I know… but there is a purpose! I’m not sure why people visit the link and don’t actually pre-save it - if you come across anything that makes you reticent I’d genuinely like to know what it is.. as it might be something I can alter!
In the immortal words of Julia Roberts (sort of) I’m just ‘an artist standing in front of his audience asking them to love him…’ ha! or something like that anyway! As a independent artist with no budget I need all the support I can get to rise to the surface of the oceans and oceans of music out there so if you can spare me 30 seconds… a pre-save could go a long way!
Asides from listening to the music, other easy and free ways to support Brave New Broken Hearts Club are:

Thanks so much!!
Higher will be out on 29/07/22 - you can Pre-save here! I look forward to sharing it with you!
