Glee‘s Kevin McHale and singer-songwriter Travis Garland may currently be the biggest names to emerge from the ashes of short-lived, late ’00s boy band NLT, but it’s time to get fellow former member Justin Thorne on your pop radar. Johnny Wright, manager of Justin Timberlake, has guided Thorne’s career through a previous stint with another boy band (One Call) and, now, down the path of solo stardom.

“I wanted to create world and tell the story of a breakup I had gone through,” Justin says of his upcoming material. “[New single] ‘The Heartbroken’ is the first part of that story.”

Above, Thorne discusses his first solo project, while clips from the video for “The Heartbroken” are revealed.

The single will be officially released on June 10. Hear it in full over at KIIS FM’s site, and get an early taste of Justin’s new music by watching the video above!
