Natalie Stovall and the Drive released the title track from their upcoming EP Heartbreak this past week, the music video for which can be seen below. The single is the first from the group’s long awaited EP set for release on February 23rd.
“Heartbreak,” demonstrates Stovall’s ability to capture the essence of a fun, upbeat song. The music video, directed by Randy Peterson and Ron Gonzalez, tells the story of a girl’s journey through numerous failed first dates that she meets on a Tinder-like app. Each scenario is easily relatable and backed by Stovall’s infectious lyrics.
“I wrote this song with Jason Gantt and Maile Misajon,” said Stovall. “It was our first time writing together, and I came in bearing my soul about my record label shutting down and the struggles that I was facing in the wake of suddenly being an independent artist again. I’m a glass half-full kind of girl, so I was trying to focus on how those challenges would eventually become a blessing and make me stronger as an artist. Once we got started, it was one of the most fun and easy co-writes.
Heartbreak is the result of an exceedingly effective Kickstarter campaign launched this past December. Recorded in Nashville, the EP features some of Nashville’s best-known tunesmiths including Victoria Banks, Nathan Chapman, Kyle Jacobs, Bruce Wallace, Jason Massey, Ruthie Collins, Jessica Roadcap, and Curt Gibbs.
