Rising Canadian singer Tate McRae has released a brand new single, ‘You Broke Me First’.
Released today (April 21) via RCA Records, McRae spoke of the new track in a press statement, saying, “This song is about someone in a relationship who couldn’t care less for the other person and then 6 months later decides to crawl back. It’s the feeling of knowing how much they meant to you, but this time not letting them back in.”
“I hope everyone can connect to this song like I do.”

‘You Broke Me First’ is the first new material since McRae released her debut EP ‘All The Things I Never Said’ in January, which featured her breakout single ‘Stupid’ and ‘Tear Myself Apart’, co-written by Billie Eilish.
In the description for the lyric video the singer explains, “this was filmed on my phone, in quarantine, taped to the front of my mom’s car, on a random rooftop.” The song is taken from McRae’s as-yet-unnamed new EP, due out later this year.
