15 June 2018 – Nashville, TN – Multi award-winning artist Francesca Battistelli is back and is ready to break up… with fear. Her new song, aptly titled “The Breakup Song” (Curb | Word Entertainment) makes its debut today on all digital outlets. A music video for the song also just premiered on Apple Music.
“The Breakup Song” is a powerful song that kicks fear to the curb. Co-written with MercyMe’s Bart Millard and writer/producer David Garcia (Bebe Rexha, Florida Georgia Line, TobyMac), Battistelli says of her new single, “Fear is a universal struggle. We all deal with it in different ways, but it holds us back from truly living. I came to the point where I decided I wanted it out of my life for good. This song is my anthem, and I pray it encourages others to break up with fear too.”
After taking some much-deserved time off of the road with her husband and four children, the GRAMMY®, GMA Dove®, and K-LOVE Fan Award winner could not be more excited to be sharing “The Breakup Song” with her fans. She is performing the song live today on NBC’s “Today In Nashville” (11am CT, WSMV, Nashville), and is returning tonight to the Grand Ole Opry stage to share the song. She most recently appeared at the K-LOVE Fan Awards this past May where she took the stage with Cory Asbury to perform his hit song “Reckless Love.”
