The song offers another taste of his long-awaited sophomore album, Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent, the arrival of which he announced in November 2022.

“I don’t want to create a new sound for myself, or reinvent myself,” the “Someone You Loved” artist explained. “The songs I want to write are emotional songs, about love or loss.”

Emotion is evident throughout “Pointless,” a song about the one person who makes life feel worthwhile when everything else seems, well… pointless. Listen to the heartfelt new song, below.

“Pointless” follows the previously released “Forget Me.” Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent is set to drop on May 19, 2023, just after the singer wraps the North American leg of his extensive 2023 world tour.
