Alice Russell’s “Heartbreaker” is drenched in timeless soul.
The song speaks of heartbreak as the title suggests and the video, directed by Steve Glashier, features unexpected visuals of an older man (actor Harry Shearer of “The Simpsons”) putting women’s clothes, hair, and makeup on as the song plays in the background.
Speaking on the single, Russell stated, “It is a broken hearted love song about the end of a relationship” explains Russell. “Its about that time when your just emotionally exhausted by it all and you are at the stage where you know you just have to let it go and you are resigned to it all being over.”
This is the leading single off the British soul singer’s fifth studio album To Dust, set to release in 2013.
