Marina And The Diamonds offers another song from her self-destructive, self-interested alter-ego, the club tune “How To Be A Heartbreaker”, available on the US release of her sophomore album Electra Heart, due out tomorrow. On the track, Marina/Electra lists the various rules involved in heartbreaking, including “Have Fun” and “Don’t get attached to somebody you could lose.” It’s basically a how-to guide for emotional sadists. Check it out below.

Marina And The Diamonds – “How To Be A Heartbreaker”

The tune, which will act as the next single off her album, was co-written by Marina in addition to Robopop, Ammar Malik, Dr. Luke, Benny Blanco and Cirkut. (The latter three also produced.) This is more their song than Marina’s. If radio play was her (or rather, her label’s) goal with “How To Be A Heartbreaker”, she’ll probably get it, since this song already sounds like half the generic dance-club songs out there.

Electra Heart drops tomorrow (July 10) in the US. The UK version, with a slightly different tracklisting, dropped in April.
