The boys in All Time Low have been in the background for much of this year after releasing their latest album Wake Up Sunshine during a pandemic, with only a cool drop of a ‘Blinding Lights‘ cover to tide us over. Now they’re squaring up and heading back into the spotlight with a brand new single.
‘Sleepwalking‘ sounds like an edgy blend of pop euphoria and emotions that stem from feelings of lust and temptation. Does anyone else get confused with the band’s previous single ‘Sleeping In‘? While the melody feels similar, ‘Sleepwalking‘ gives us the same kinda energy we love from All Time Low, and that’s what counts.
On the new song, Alex Gaskarth shared:
“‘Sleepwalking’ is a reflection on time spent away from whatever it is that makes you feel alive, on time lost to the weight of dragging feet and drifting thoughts. As we were working on this song, we considered our place in a changing world– We realized just how affected we were as individuals by time spent away from our most familiar life-lines, and how grateful we are now to come together with those people, places and things… our friends, families, touring, shows, art and the energy and perspective that comes with real, raw connection. Our time spent away from our most beloved dreams felt like being on cruise-control, going through the motions in a trance. We are so grateful to be here now, sharing this song, this sentiment, this energy, and most of all this band with you. Thank you for being here and for being with us as we continue this journey together.”
While there’s no word if this is just a one-off release, keep your eyes peeled as I’m sure this won’t be the only news peeking from the All Time Low camp!
