Twenty One Pilots Announces New Album “Scaled And Icy”, Premieres New Song “Shy Away” on BBC Radio 1 Future Sounds
- American musical duo Twenty One Pilots premiered a new song “Shy Away” on BBC Radio 1 Future Sounds.
The song is the first single off of their upcoming sixth studio album “Scaled And Icy”, which is set to be released on May 21, 2021.
It was written by Tyler Joseph. The accompanying music video was directed by Miles Cable and AJ Favicchio.
Tyler Joseph told Jack Saunders of BBC Radio 1, “I've just been having a good time, playing some guitar for the first time, ever. I think nothing is more inspiring than learning a new instrument that I've never played before, specifically, the electric guitar and I had my younger brother over, he's like 'Hey, I wanna watch your process from start to finish, how do you start a song, how do you record a song, how to you write a song?' [I] just kinda came up with the beginnings of the song, almost as a tutorial for him on how to lay out a song, how to start it, how to record it, how to produce it out.”
- He continued, “Lyrically, it kinda turned out to talk about being an older brother and how the only tougher than trying to figure out what your own purpose is, is watching someone you love try to figure out their purpose. This track means a lot to me for a few other reasons as well, the majority of this record was written and produced in my own studio. And specifically for Josh, […] this is the first time that he's recorded drums all on his own, no engineer, no one helping him at all […]. We were working from across the country at the time.”
The new album comprises of 11-track. The album's title is an anagram of "Clancy is Dead", a reference to the protagonist of the fifth studio album “Trench”.
The new album is available to pre-order here.
