After independently posting up nearly half-a-billion cumulative streams and views, Southern California singer, producer and multi-instrumentalist Lund serves up the official remix of his breakout single “Broken” feat. Lil Skies and Noah Cyrus.

The track takes on a new life with multiple dimensions. Over the signature guitar-laced beat, Lil Skies rolls through with airtight bars as Noah embraces the haunted hook with hypnotic harmonies and a captivating crescendo.
“Never thought I’d see the day where two of my idols are featured on a track that I made in my bedroom. I owe it all to everyone out there listening, thank you for everything,” says Lund on the track.
“Lund and I been trying to collab for a minute, this track right here was fire! Got me on here singing,” says Lil Skies on the collaboration.
“I thought this record was hard from the second I heard it. It took probably 30 minutes to write my verse because I feel so connected to the record. And lowkey I’ve been playing the song every day since the day we did it,” Noah Cyrus says on working on the song.
This update continues an unbelievable underdog story for the song and its creator. Crafted and released D.I.Y. by Lund, the original “Broken” has already gathered 170 million Spotify streams and 60 million YouTube views to date. It also cemented him as a much mused-about musical force as a prolific string of releases followed until he signed to Republic Records this year.
Get ready for more music from Lund very soon.
Growing up about 65 miles away from Los Angeles in Moreno Valley, Lund developed a heightened musical perspective as a little kid. Born to high school-age parents, he lived with his paternal grandparents as mom struggled with drugs and dad faced severe mental health issues. Lund’s grandfather taught him how to play guitar at just six-years-old. At the same time, he listened to everything from Red Hot Chili Peppers, Radiohead, and Coldplay to N.W.A. and Gravediggaz. He played trumpet throughout middle school and even participated in marching band and orchestra. Discovery of Ableton broadened his sonic horizons further. By eleventh grade, he found himself cooking up his own productions and laying down vocals. Working out of his home studio, he architected everything from scratch, crafting the production, instrumentation, and singing.
Juggling a day job and music, he unassumingly uploaded “Broken” online. Slowly but surely, it gained unbelievable traction. Influential YouTube channels such as Astari touted it, and A-list streamer Clicky Crisp incorporated it in a popular Counterstrike montage. With its airy guitar, echo-y trap beat, and cathartic melodies, “Broken” generated a staggering 152.4 million Spotify streams and 54 million YouTube views. The track’s raw approach immediately resonated. Along the way, he dropped two independent projects—Gold and BlkBird—followed by the likes of “Low,” “Heartache” [feat. Foreign Forest], and “Skin & Bones.” Additionally, he launched his first-ever tour in 2020 with Guardin and GucciHighWaters, selling out venues across North America. As he prepares more music, Lund makes an impact through each and every song.
