Aidan Bissett returns with an introspective, headbanging, feel-good anthem for anyone who’s ever been dumped. Listen to “Dumped,” which he co-produced with Ryan Daly (Fitz and the Tantrums, Adam Lambert, Cyn), HERE. After writing the guitar-driven break-up song, Bissett took to TikTok to explain how the track came together in this tongue-in-cheek clip.
“Getting dumped is the worst feeling in the world, but screaming this song will make you feel a whole lot better,” says Aidan Bissett. “The song is about learning that you are better off on your own and that it’s okay to be alone.”
Director Brooke James (Troye Sivan) matches the energy of Bissett’s performance with the vibrant, kinetic official video for “Dumped.” Holed up in a typical teen bedroom, Bissett thoughtfully unpacks his heartbreak on the verses, then rages with his guitar on the scream-along chorus as the camera spins and zooms with equal frenzy.

“Dumped” is the follow-up to “So High,” which Euphoria praised as “a certified summer bop…this song demands to be played after dark either by the pool or the beach with a fire roaring nearby and drinks being passed around among friends.” The Honey Pop declared, “Aidan Bissett is an artist that everyone needs to be paying attention to. We have a feeling this is only the beginning of his genius artistry.”
Born in Florida, Bissett was raised on classic rock bands like Led Zeppelin and AC/DC. He moved to Oregon with his family when he was five and started playing electric guitar in second grade. When his family moved back to Florida, he began teaching himself to produce his own music. Just a year ago, Bissett released his first single, “Different,” which immediately gained traction online.
