Basia Bulat's breakup album makes heartache sound so good
If you've ever had your heart crushed, you know how much it can change you. It's a transformation you can really hear in Basia Bulat's searing new breakup album, Good Advice.
Fans familiar with Bulat's roster of restrained, intimate songs may be surprised by her new record's big drums, R&B basslines and soaring vocals. Today the folk-tinged pop singer-songwriter joins Shad to discuss the departure — which has her poised for wider success.
"The songs wrote themselves that way," says Bulat of the shift. "If I feel like something's not in my wheelhouse I explore why."
