WALK THE MOON Releases New Song “Rise Up” from New Album “Heights”
- American rock band WALK THE MOON will release their fifth studio album “Heights” on November 12, 2021 via RCA Records.
It is first studio album to be recorded as a trio since bassist Kevin Ray left the band in December 2020.
From the album the band unveiled a new song “Rise Up” along with a music video.
It was written by Nicholas Petricca, Eli Maiman, Sean Waugaman, Jonas Jeberg and Sam Hollander.
“'Rise Up' arose partly out of a long sleepless night alone in the studio, stacking vocals on vocals until the track sounded like something off of Queen's A Day at the Races,” frontman Nicholas Petricca said of the song. “The song is about how nobody's perfect and perseverance is universal, and I guess I needed a thousand singing voices to really get that across.”
The accompanying music video was directed by Anna Lee. In the clip, the band's fans are participating.
The band said, “so happy this song is now yours!! huge thanks to the fans who made this video happen.”
