The first time Robert Schwartzman probably stole your heart was playing Anne Hathaway's love interest in a little movie titled The Princess Diaries. But before he was making his acting debut, he was the frontman behind your favorite west coast power pop band Rooney. It's been roughly six years since we've heard from the band, but as they say, great music is usually worth the wait. 

Fret no more my friends, cause the band is back, and will shortly release a self-written, self-produced album called Washed Away. Their lead single "My Heart Beats 4 U" is an infectious anthem that will have you smitten all over again with Schwartzman's vocal chops. Give it a spin below and be cautious of an extra pep in that Spring step once the track ends. 

the band is back and will shortly release a self-written and self-produced record called Washed Away. They were gracious enough to share the lead single “My Heart Beats 4 U,” and it’s so incredibly catchy, we’re smitten and turning the tables on Rooney. No, it’s our hearts that beat for you. It’s anthemic, and was constructed that way on purpose. Schwartzman says of the track, “I go to a lot of sporting events, and there’s that sort of  ‘We Will Rock You’ kind of beat to this song.” Indeed, though here we hear a peppier, warmer tone that feels like it would be right at home backing the culminating scene in a teen romance movie
Listen to “My Heart Beats 4 U” on Spotify, and prepare to be Washed Away on May 6 when the album comes out via Beachwood Park Music.
