Twenty One Pilots are back! The duo have announced their new album, Scaled And Icy, out May 21st via Fueled By Ramen.
Similar to 2018’s Trench, the new album was written and ”largely” produced by Tyler Joseph, while Josh Dun sent his drum part virtually from Los Angeles throughout the pandemic.
“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,” according to a release announcing the project.
“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 release continued. “The result is a collection of songs that push forward through setbacks and focus on the possibilities worth remembering.”
In anticipation of the new album, the two have shared its lead single “Shy Away” along with its music video directed by Miles & AJ. Watch the video below.
