MacKenzie Porter shares 4 brand new songs including, “Easy To Miss” and “Young At Heart,” ahead of upcoming debut album. Listen to the new tracks below.
Canadian-country star, MacKenzie Porter is primed to have a huge year in 2024. The Big Loud Records recording artist just announced the release date for her debut album, Nobody’s Born With A Broken Heart, out April 26th. To celebrate the news, the songstress is giving fans a sneak peak of what’s to come on the project, releasing four brand new songs.
The first of the sampler project is a song called “Easy To Miss.” The mid-tempo song is easily digestible and catchy, even after just one listen. While the story behind the song is about missing someone you are no longer with, the juxtaposition between the story-telling and the dynamics of the song make the song interesting and fun to listen to
“Well it’s hard waking up in the morning // And it’s hard getting sleep at night // And it’s hard when I’m reeling, staring at the ceiling with you on my mind // And it’s hard holding onto nothing with my arms round the emptiness // But it’s harder to let go // Why you gotta be so easy to miss?”
Next up, “Pay Me Back In Change,” written by Emma Klein continues the story of heartbreak in a new perspective. Porter’s vocals are beautiful, as she conveys the quiet lyrics in a perfectly effortless way. The song portrays the cracks in a relationship, where the protagonist asks their lover to change, rather than to keep putting a bandaid on the parts that need fixing.
Porter continues the beautiful story-telling on the upcoming title track. Written by Porter with Luke Niccoli, Lydia Vaughan, and Parker Welling, “Nobody’s Born With A Broken Heart” is a standout. Throughout the song, Porter shares the experiences she has been through, candidly expressing heartbreak in both an honest and vulnerable way.
“Daddy yells // Mommas eyes love like the summer rain // Old enough to know what’s going on // To young to drive away // I learned the hard way that growing up is hard // “Cause nobody’s born with a broken heart // Love’s a blade and God it’s a sharp // Smooth as steel but leaves a mark // Proof of life is dying with scars // ‘Cause nobody’s born with a broken heart // Yeah nobody’s born with a broken heart”
Rounding out the four-song release, Porter shares a song called, “Young At Heart.” Much like the previous singles, the single expresses honesty and storytelling in the most beautiful of ways. Throughout the song, Porter shares about healing, heartbreak, and everything in between.
Overall, the four-song teaser is a perfect introduction into Porter’s incredible talent. She has a knack for bringing stories and emotions to life through music. Stay tuned for the full album release, coming this April!
