We know there's a lot of new music out today. But stop for a moment and listen to Syd's new record.

Out today on Columbia Records, Broken Hearts Club marks the singer, songwriter and producer's second solo album, and it's exactly the album we needed, as Syd demonstrates such growth as an artist while proving herself such an adept storyteller and vocalist, documenting a relationship from beginning to end. It also features a small handful of incredible guest appearances from the likes of Kehlani, Smino and Lucky Daye.

"The album is about a relationship I had that ended in my first real broken heart," says Syd. "It almost felt like I joined a club because all of my friends went through similar experiences. 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."
