Black Kids release new single ‘If My Heart Is Broken’

Black Kids

Black KidsBlack Kids have released a new single, If My Heart Is Broken along with a lyric video. The track appears on their sophomore album, ‘Rookie,’ which will be out September 15. The album was recorded and co-produced by Andy LeMaster at Chase Park Transduction. Watch the video for If My Heart Is Broken.

Singer Reggie Youngblood explains the inspiration behind If My Heart is Broken, “This song is the closest thing I have to a regrettable tattoo, cos when I hear it, I’m reminded that it came about when I legit thought I could move to Nashville and write country songs for Rayna James. I mean, I told everyone I was going to. AND THEN someone told me she’s a fictional character… No “ifs” about it, I was def heartbroken—it would’ve made a great fake country song for a fake country artist.”

After taking an almost decade long hiatus before the release of their sophomore album, “Much like Odysseus and Co., on our journey to make the ‘difficult second album,’ shit got rough,” Youngblood says. “A few of us heeded the siren call of ‘side projects.’ Tumultuous relationships and periods of Imposter Syndrome also impeded progress. Worst of all, I couldn’t write a chorus. And for a band that worships The Chorus, this was problematic.”
