Broken Hearts Club will be released on April 22, via Columbia Records. The 13-track project will follow a narrative that finds Syd navigating the ups and downs of a relationship from start to finish.

“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,” Syd said in a statement.

“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.”

“Could You Break a Heart (stylized as “CYBAH”),” is a bass-driven mid-tempo track, with splashes of guitar swirls and slides, and sparse tom-tom drum hits. Together, Syd and Daye ask if a new love interest will be true or not. “CYBAH” follows three previously released singles from Syd, “Missing Out,” “Fast Car,” and “Right Track,” all of which are included on Broken Hearts Club‘s tracklist.

Syd performed, co-wrote, and co-produced the album, along with production collaborators that include Grammy-winners Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins, Troy Taylor, and G Koop. In addition to Daye, the album also features guest appearances from two-time Grammy-nominated singer Kehlani and Grammy-nominated rapper Smino.

Broken Hearts Club is the full-length follow-up to Syd’s critically acclaimed debut solo album, 2017’s Fin. She also released a three-song EP, Always Never Home, later that same year. This is also her first release since The Internet’s fourth album, 2018’s Hive Mind.

Syd founded The Internet with fellow former Odd Future cohort, keyboardist Matt Martians, in 2011. Also part of the band is two-time Grammy-nominated guitarist, singer, and producer, Steve Lacy.
