Cade Hoppe Returns With New Single “Hurts”

After closing out last year with his debut EP Tell Me How It’s Worth It, emerging indie-pop artist Cade Hoppe is back with his new single, “Hurts,” out today.

Written from the point of view of someone who has recently broken up with their significant other, “Hurts” grapples with feeling the weight of their absence. Cade elaborates on the track: “‘Hurts’ is about experiencing that strange post-relationship purgatory for the first time and realizing that anyone you love is going to hurt to lose, whether you were both meant to be or not. The thesis of this song is: ‘It’s not easy losing somebody, it always hurts.’ I think we all have to learn that lesson at some point in our lives and this song is about when I learned it for myself.”
