Justin sings about Selena on new track

2013-10-08 11:20

Los Angeles - Justin Bieber has released a new track about Selena Gomez called Heartbreaker.

The pop star has given his first taste of new music since his Believe Acoustic album at the beginning of the year, with the slow-paced R&B song on Monday.

Explaining the track, he said: "It's a song for people going through heartbreak - like I was when I wrote it. It means so much to me to be able to share what I was, and still am, going through, with my fans. I'm very proud of this song and I hope it gives my fans some insight into my heart."

Justin, 19, split with Selena, 21, at the end of last year, and although he is thought to have tried to win her back, they remain apart.

New song every Monday

Heartbreaker even features a spoken word section in the middle, where Justin says: "So what I'm really trying to say is / and what I hope you understand / Is despite all the imperfections of who I am / I still wanna be your man."

The Beauty and a Beat star also says his new material will be more confessional than previous efforts, tweeting: "These songs are different. These are my #journals."

Justin will be releasing a new song each Monday for ten weeks, previewing his new album under the banner #MusicMondays.
