“Sapphire,” the latest from Berlin musician Weirdo, was two years in the making. The good news is, it’s worth the wait. Soaring, galactic and deeply sad, the track describes the crushing disappointment of realizing your hero isn’t who you thought. This comes with a haunting chorus that, while blatantly anti-climactic, is bound to leave you broken: “I thought that you were sapphire,” Weirdo breathes, “but you’re not very sapphire.” If that’s not enough to pull on your heartstrings, the ripping guitar solo that hits three-quarters through the song will. Listen for yourself below.
