Heartbreak on a Full Moon is the eighth new studio album by American singer Chris Brown, and it has 45 Songs. The album is a double-disc, and was released on digital platforms on October 31, 2017 and has a physical release of November 3, 2017 by RCA.
Brown started working on and recording tracks for the album a few weeks before the release of Royalty, his seventh studio album, in late 2015. He continued working on the album during 2016 and 2017. Brown also built a recording studio inside of his home. Brown said about the album during an interview for Complex:
“I thought Heartbreak On a Full Moon was a depiction of what my soul wanted to say. It’s funny because we’re not doing a double album. I’ve done so many records, but all of the records, to me, are personal favorites and I feel like it gets what I want to say across. It gives a vibe. You get nostalgia or you get a sense of individuality.
The cover art for the album was announced on October 5, 2017. The artwork shows a human heart, dripping blood, in front of a pink moon.
