Twenty One Pilots continue to build up the excitement for their upcoming album Scaled and Icy. This time, the duo did it in the best way possible, sharing a groovy new single, “Saturday”.
The uplifting track channels hope for some brighter times after a challenging year. It looks to inspire people to get into party mode and “paint the town” on Saturday.
By the sound of it, the song looks poised to be a club banger when nightlife finds its footing again. Hear it below.
“Saturday” follows two previously released singles from Scaled and Icy, “Choker” and “Shy Away.” The album is set for release on May 21st. It is the group’s sixth studio effort and follows 2018’s critically acclaimed Trench.
The new album was written and produced in major part by frontman and vocalist Tyler Joseph. Joseph worked on the record in his home studio during the coronavirus pandemic while drummer Josh Dun made his contributions remotely.
In a recent interview, Joseph said that the record was purposely made “shiny, and colorful, and seemingly upbeat,” but added that “as you dive into lyrics, a lot of times it’s asking some pretty heavy questions and addressing some pretty heavy things.”
The list of personnel on Scaled and Icy also includes frequent 50 Cent and Eminem collaborator Mike Elizondo, singer and songwriter Paul Meany, and producer Greg Kurstin.
