Pentatonix have shared brand new single ‘The Lucky Ones’, the title track from their upcoming original album.
Recently released tracks ‘Happy Now’ and ‘Be My Eyes’ will also feature on the new full-length, due out on 12 February 2021.
LISTEN TO ‘THE LUCKY ONES’ HERE:
‘Happy Now’ was Pentatonix’s first original music since their self-titled original album in 2015, which debuted at No.1 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart and has since been RIAA certified gold. The track was produced by Johan Carlsson, Sean Myer and Ojivolta, and co-produced by the group with Ben Bram.
Discussing ‘Happy Now’ Kirstin Maldonado commented, “We’ve all been evolving – individually and as a group – and I think we’ve really levelled-up in terms of seeking out our own happiness. So, to me, this song is a little bit about us turning the page and being ready for a new chapter.”
