Fitz and The Tantrums Premieres New Song “123456”
- Los Angeles-based alt-pop band Fitz and The Tantrums has unveiled a new song “123456” with an accompanying music video, directed by Jamie Thraves & Ofir Shoham.
Back in 2016, the band released the self-titled third studio album. Three years later, the band plans to the new album. The song is the first single off the new album.
Frontman Michael Fitzpatrick said, “‘123456’ has a fun and carefree vibe, but it’s actually quite an emotional song personally. Before writing the song, I was questioning my talent, fighting off insecurities, and trying to find a way to keep going. The music to ‘123456’ literally pulled me out of a funk and hyped me up. And so the lyric goes: ‘hyped up ready to go, I got my eyes on the prize, I’m sick of feeling the lows I wanna roll with the highs’. It was the turning point of the record for me, capturing the moment when optimism, hope and confidence were found after a dark period as an artist trying to write for this album.”
