You+Me's 'Break The Cycle' Is A Love Song To P!nk's Mom In Disguise

Eliot Lee Hazel

You+Me is the project of Alecia Moore (P!nk) and Dallas Green (City and Colour), two of the most notable voices in music today. While such prominent voices rarely mix too seamlessly, Green and Moore were destined to harmonize together.

"It doesn't sound like you featuring me, or me featuring you," Green said in the group's explainer video. "It sounds like us."

Gearing up to release their debut album, "rose ave.," on Oct. 14, HuffPost Entertainment is pleased to premiere the group's second single, "Break the Cycle."

Keeping in line with the acoustically driven tone of their first track, "You and Me," strings float in and out as Moore and Green sit an octave apart atop sparse strums during the verses. In the chorus, the duo harmonizes with a more upbeat feel, matched in lyrics like, "Let me heal the wounds you've held onto for all these years / Break the cycle, break the chains / Love is louder than all your pain."

“We were at the bar talking and I really wanted to write a song about my mom," Moore told HuffPost Entertainment. "It didn’t turn out to be quite the love song I thought it would be, but it’s very honest and came out to be so much more.”

“The words of the chorus is the loving, nurturing part," Green told HuffPost Entertainment. "I did not expect this song to turn out the way it did and it’s so good.”
