Rising LA-based starlet Courtney Paige Nelson returns with an anthemic new single entitled ‘1-800-broke-my-heart’.
Courtney wrote the song as a way to process the trauma that she had endured during a messy breakup. Lyrically raw and relatable, the track’s aim is to empower the broken-hearted, and remind them that better days lie ahead.
“After a terrible breakup which resulted in me finding out my ex was cheating on me with his coworker, I got extremely depressed and wrote this song telling my side of the story since I never got a chance to speak my piece. There wasn’t any closure for me so it was priority to write something that would help decompress the giant knot in my chest. I wanted to be as vulnerable as possible when writing this song, so when it’s released I felt like I was relieved instead of feeling like I should’ve been more open. There was a lot of this story that I think many can relate to as a breakup/ situationship anthem. I say anthem because I want it to empower people, not make them dwell on negative emotions with whatever they are going through. There’s so many sad songs in the world, and I love me a good sad song. But this time I needed something to yell driving down the freeway with my middle finger in the air.”
Born and raised in San Francisco, Courtney Paige Nelson is forging a name for herself as one of American pop’s most promising independent talents.
