Heartbreak Lullaby was A-Teens fourth and final single from the German and Scandinavian versions of their second studio album Teen Spirit and for the The Princess Diaries movie soundtrack in Europe and Asia. The song was written by Jan Kask, Peter Mansson and Cathy Dennis. By public demand, the song was released on radio and TV in Mexico in January 2002 to promote the album "Teen Spirit - New Version" but failed to get the public's attention peaking only at fifty-eight on the Airplay Chart.

The single had minor exposure due to big competition on the winter releases by many artists.

"...To The Music" was originally planned as the fourth single from the album, but Disney wanted the A-Teens to participate on the soundtrack for the movie The Princess Diaries, the movie was already out in the United States and Latin America, for that reason, the single was only released in Europe and Asia.

The song reached number-six on the Swedish charts and seventy-seven on the German charts in December 2001.

The single release had "I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday" added and it was later included on a Disney Compilation of Christmas Songs for the American market.

For the radio promotion and the video, the "Ray Hedges 7" Mix" of the track from the Teen Spirit (New Edition) album was used instead of the main version of the song. the "Ballad version" of the album was later included on the Greatest Hits and their third studio album New Arrival.
