Hunter Hayes is back with his first official radio single in three years. The song is called "Heartbreak," and it was solely written by Hunter, who hasn't written solo in five years. 

He said, "After a relationship ends, I think we all want to know that there is someone for us but unfortunately, a lot of people have been lead to believe that you’re supposed to feel sh**ty after a breakup. I wanted this song to turn that feeling around for people and remind them not to let someone walk out the door with your happiness and your self-worth. I kind of want this song to be somebody’s disco ball on a depressing night rather than a box of tissues and a Hugh Grant movie . . . It’s a song about freedom. It’s a song about true honest happiness and love and how there is love for everyone. Not only are you worthy of being loved but there is somebody out there who loves you even though they haven’t met you. In the darkness of a heart breaking, I’m here to tell you there’s also a whole lotta light.”
 
"Heartbreak" is the lead single from Hunter's upcoming third studio album, due out later this year.
