With over half a billion streams to his name, breakout pop sensation Alexander Stewart releases his new single ‘broken by you,’ the first release from his forthcoming album due out later this year. Co-written by Alexander with The Nocturns, Corey Sanders and Nolan Sipe, the brazen, cinematic new single marks the beginning of a new chapter for Alexander as he learns to navigate an inevitable heartbreak.

”broken by you’ was written in the depths of me trying to find a silver lining in a heartbreak that I knew was already coming,’ Alexander says. ‘Sometimes you reach a point in a relationship when you’ve done all that you can to fight for the other person, and realising that can feel just as freeing as it does heartbreaking. I can’t wait to play this song live, along with the many more that are to come. This is just the beginning!’

Directed by Nick and Pat Demarais, the ‘broken by you’ music video follows Alexander Stewart through a dream-like sequence surrounded by an array of mirrors. Throughout the video, the mirrors become symbolic of Alexander’s introspection and self’discovery, and ultimately allow Alexander a moment to unleash his hurt and heartbreak.

Last week, Alexander announced the North American leg of The Bleeding Hearts Tour, which spans 19 cities including New York, Los Angeles and his hometown of Toronto. Previously, Alexander has toured with artists including Charlie Puth, Benson Boone, Eric Nam and for his international headlining Blame’s On Me Tour, performing in front of his rapidly growing fan base that has expanded to over 500 million global streams, 300 million views on YouTube, and 130 million likes on TikTok

‘broken by you’ follows Alexander’s latest EP if you only knew, which was released last December. Shortly after its release, Alexander debuted an emotional performance of the single on Late Night with Seth Meyers. The EP also features his massive hit ‘I wish you cheated,’ which launched with a viral TikTok campaign that saw over 45 million views and led to his late-night TV debut performance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
