Trei Edwvrd Gives Insight On The Creation Of Heartless Desires

Trei Edwvrd: From Behind The Mic To Behind The Scenes

In June Trei Edwvrd gave his fans a much needed dose of new music when he released his sophomore album Heartless Desires. The 12 song project has received high praise since its release and shines a light on Edwvrd’s versatility. Finally, Edwvrd has opened up regarding his process for creating the album and what the future holds for the rising star.

Breaking It Down

“When I released my first album Blue Valentine in 2021, I honestly never thought it would reach the success that it did. The last time I checked it had a little over 275,000 streams. As an independent artist I completely lost my mind because at the time I had just started making music professionally and wasn’t fully comfortable with my style and flow yet. Of course I had people telling me my music was fire and all that but as an artist I’m very hard on myself so when I hear someone say one of my songs is great, I think to myself alright I can do better.”

“When it first came to a concept, I knew immediately that it had to hit even harder than Blue Valentine. I wanted to make something that others could feel. I had a lot of songs written but not yet recorded that fit the criteria but at the time I was going through so much in my personal life that I figured it would just be best to put to paper so people could feel me and relate not just on a personal level but also on a mature level.”

The Missing Piece

“The first eleven songs came pretty simple just because I was in such a creative mindset for so long that it kind of just felt like songs were flowing out of me to an extent. I made it a priority to have all the vibes on this project so when I finished Onlyfans and Win Again I knew I had something special on my hands. At that point I was just missing the key breakout single to piece the album together.”

Edwvrd continued, “I was hanging out with my brother Kyle (ItstherealKO) one day and he played me a beat which turned out to be Heartless Desires and we immediately sat down and wrote verses and a hook to it and recorded it the next day. The beat was actually called heartless desires and I loved it so much that I named my album after it. It was fitting because when I think of heartless desires I think of all the things that toxic people either knowingly or unknowingly do to hurt others. I felt that in my soul from both perspectives and from there Heartless Desires was born.”
