The boys of Twenty One Pilots are back!
The group returned on Wednesday (April 7) to announce that their new album, Scaled and Icy, will be released on May 21.
In addition to the album announcement, the duo also shared the upcoming album’s first single, “Shy Away,” which is accompanied by a Miles & AJ directed official music video.
This is Twenty One Pilots’ first studio album in three years, following Trench.
They also announced their first-ever global streaming event, “Twenty One Pilots – Livestream Experience,” which is scheduled for world broadcast on May 21 at 8 p.m. ET.
The live show promises to include selections from their catalog, and the live debut of new material from Scaled And Icy. Tickets are available right here.
Here’s a description: “Scaled And Icy is the product of long-distance virtual sessions and finds the duo processing their upended routines along with the prevailing emotions of 2020 – anxiety, loneliness, boredom, and doubt. The duo had to forgo their normal studio sessions but reached a new of level of introspection in the process, adopting a more imaginative and bold approach to their songwriting. The result is a collection of songs that push forward through setbacks and focus on the possibilities worth remembering.”
“Don’t you shy away / Manifest a ceiling / When you shy away / Searchin’ for that feelin’ / Just like an ‘I love you’ / That isn’t words / Like a song he wrote / That’s never heard,” Tyler sings on the new track.
