Joss Stone Laments Heartache On ‘Breaking Each Other’s Hearts’

One thing we know the new year will bring is a new album from songstress Joss Stone. The singer gave us a preview of her new set, titled Never Forget My Love, by dropping off its soulful title track as the lead single. Now she’s offering another listen and look with her follow up “Breaking Each Other’s Hearts” and its video.

“Breaking Each Other’s Hearts” gives us soul with high drama thanks to a fully orchestrated sound. The listener’s ears are met with the swell of strings from the very beginning to let us know that this one will be emotional before quieting down for the verse. There is where Joss gets to the heart of things as she sings about the way she and her guy are tearing apart their love. “All the mistakes I’ve made / I wish they would all go away / It’s as if they were tailor-made for me,” she sings. “It gets harder to believe / As the day goes by / I keep asking myself why.” That leads back to the drama as the chorus ramps up the feelings. This push and pull continues throughout the song until the end, with Joss ending on a sweet final note before the strings play her out.

The video also picks up on the song’s energy, showing Joss as a simple woman waiting for her man to come back home. When the chorus arrives, she transforms into a diva decked out in a sparkling gown and jewelry as she belts out the chorus. Once she gets out her feelings, she’s back to normal until the next swell of emotion sends her back to her other persona once again. The pattern continues until eventually she’s left with the diva persona while her man stumbles home drunk before the clip fades to black.

There’s still no official date for when we’ll be getting the newest project from Joss Stone, but it seems there’s going to be a lot to love when it does arrive.
