Dagny shares first single from second half of debut album "It’s Only A Heartbreak"

04 September 2020, 13:14 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Dagny has returned with new single "It’s Only A Heartbreak", the first taster of the second half of her debut album Strangers / Lovers.

"It's Only A Heartbreak" is Dagny's first new outing since releasing the first side of Strangers / Lovers landed in May.

Dagny says of her new single, ""It's Only A Heartbreak" is actually partly inspired by the classic movie Casablanca from 1942, and Humphrey Bogart's famous quote: "Here's looking at you, kid". Like the movie, the song is about knowing that you will never get someone back, but you can secretly still look at, and admire, that certain someone. The song carries a nonchalant expression, but the undertone makes it pretty obvious that you're not over that person yet."

The artist adds of her debut LP, "Being able to release music and playing shows is how I feel happy doing what I do. I would call that successful. I need to try and not think too much about what this album is going to do, but remember how it all happened, the good times we had making it, the people I met while making it, the emotions that I tried to convey and whether I feel good. It needs to go and live its own life."

"It's Only A Heartbreak" is out now. Dagny's Strangers / Lovers album will arrive 2 October via Little Daggers Records.
