In episode 2 of Hear Her Voice, Laura Whitmore is joined by her special guests KT Tunstall and Daisy Buchanan to explore songs from the heart about losing love and finding yourself along the way.
Together they celebrate the best breakup anthems of all time, and the artists who know what it’s like to lose love, own it and sing about it straight from the heart. The message is loud and clear: don’t just put up with things, take control!
