Los Angeles trio LANY have announced that their fourth album, gg bb xx, will be released on September 3 via Interscope Records. The album is now available for pre-order. Today, they’ve shared two new thrilling tracks, “up to me” and “dna [demo].”
The two new songs follow the first offering from gg bb xx, “dancing in the the kitchen”—which Uproxx says “showcases the group’s knack for penning relatable pop tunes, emphasizing the importance of enjoying life’s little moments over a joyous beat”—and LANY’s first new music of 2021, “I Quit Drinking,” a duet with country superstar Kelsea Ballerini which debuted with a live performance at this year’s CMT Awards last month.
Following last year’s mama’s boy—which debuted at No.7 on the Billboard 200 and No.1 on the Alternative Albums sales chart with more than 300 million streams to date—gg bb xx finds LANY returning to their infectious pop sound, collaborating with an array of notable songwriters and producers including Andrew Goldstein (Maroon 5, Katy Perry, Lauv), John Ryan (Shawn Mendes, Charlie Puth, Harry Styles), David Hodges (Ed Sheeran, 5SOS, Blink 182), Tobias Jesso Jr. (Adele, Sia, HAIM), Dan Smyers of Dan + Shay and more.
LANY’s breakthrough came with their 2017 self-titled debut, which built an international fanbase and led to sold out arenas across the world. The heartbreak anthems on their 2018 follow-up Malibu Nights cracked the Billboard Album Chart and connected in a huge way across the globe, with their 2019 collaboration with Lauv, “Mean It,” garnering further attention.
Fronted by songwriter, lyricist and producer Paul Klein, LANY have a social media following of 8.2 million people, have sold more than 415,000 tickets worldwide and played sold-out shows from L.A.’s Greek Theatre to London’s Brixton Academy. Their songs have been streamed over three billion times with more than 600 million video views to date. With their new singles, LANY are sure to only build upon that success.
