Twenty One Pilots, the rock duo from Columbus, OH that brought you “Stressed Out,” “Heathens,” and “Jumpsuit” are back with the announcement of a new album, Scaled and Icy. This is the band’s first album since 2018’s Trench and is set to be released May 21 via Fueled by Ramen.

“Written and largely produced by Joseph in isolation over the course of the past year at his home studio, with Dun engineering the album’s drums from across the country, 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,” reads the press release. “The duo had to forgo their normal studio sessions but reached a new 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.”

On top of their sixth studio album’s announcement, Twenty One Pilots also released the first single from the upcoming album, “Shy Away.” This is the first time fans have heard anything from this band since their Christmas single, “Christmas Saves the Year.” You can watch the music video for the new single below.
