Vincent Mason attempts to navigate what feels like a case of incurable heartbreak in his new song, “Heart Like This.”

The tune, penned by the Interscope/UMG Nashville/Music Soup artist alongside Cary Barlowe and Jaxson Free, exposes the raw reality of losing someone who once brought nothing but love and comfort to life. Mason takes a deep dive into his emotions and draws out an honest look into his vulnerable songwriting as he finds himself questioning how to repair his pain.

Opening Up About The Aftermath Of A Breakup

The opening verse illustrates what his heart looked like when it belonged to his ex, revealing it was once “shiny” and full of light and is now shattered and “bleeding.”

“It was good when it was yours, oh/ It was shiny like a California bar of gold/ ‘Til you cut it deep, girl, with your leaving/ Now I just can’t stop the bleeding/ I don’t know what happened/ Now you got me asking,” he sings on the opening verse. 

The raw rumblings of his vocals that continue throughout the relatable chorus is enough to send a chill up a listener’s spine, causing them to fall further into the trance of the soft guitar storms and heavy energy. 

“What do I do with this bruised up, broke down/ Barely holding on thing in my chest?/ What do I do with this damn near flatlining/ Nose diving beat leaving me a wreck?/ With the shape that you left it, baby/ I bet it ain’t got too much love left in it to give/ So what do I do? What do I do with a heart like this?”


Mason Admits The Song “Feels On Brand” For Him

While reflecting on the new track, the Roswell, GA native expressed pride for its ability to capture listeners with its relatable story while simultaneously invoking an sing along with its addicting melody. He also noted that “Heart Like This” is exactly the kind of music he wants to fill his growing discography with.  

“The sing along aspect of this song made it stand out to everyone who heard it, that was a main reason why we decided to release it,” he shared honestly. “It really just feels on brand, it’s the perfect representation of the songs I want to put out.”

This fresh release continues Vincent Mason’s momentum following his debut EP, Can’t Just Be Me. This collection offers six diverse songs that highlight many of the lessons learned along the way of his real-life journey up until the present moment.  

He has been gaining more and more recognition on the road and will keep the momentum going through the end of July into August with opening dates for artists such as Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert, Corey Kent and the entirety of Gavin Adcock’s fall tour. In the fall, Mason will also join Kameron Marlowe for select dates of his current trek.
