Plain White T’s have unveiled the latest taster of their upcoming self-titled album with feel-good single ‘Fired Up’.
With their ninth studio album scheduled for release November 17, the track is the latest in a string of singles for the band, following pared-back acoustic tune ‘You Plus Me’ earlier this month.
Dialling up the energy, ‘Fired Up’ is a three-minute sonic serotonin boost showcasing just what Plain White T’s do best – have a listen and watch the feel-good video below.
Discussing the band’s new single, Plain White T’s frontman Tom Higgenson has said:
“‘Fired Up’ is such a party!
“Somehow, it’s energetic and lazy, amped up and chill, all at the same time. I think it might be the best song on the album. It’s all about looking around and seizing the day. A total feel good song, but in an odd, quirky way. I don’t think it’s possible to listen to it without smiling.”
And discussing the new album, Higgenson has explained how the band went about the record, explaining:
“We were trying to hark back to sounds we’ve used in the past with a freshness.
“This one came from a really authentic place of understanding who we are and what we do. I’m more excited than I’ve been in a long time.
“As musicians, we’re always trying to outdo ourselves or go somewhere we haven’t gone before. Somehow, we figured out how to go to a fresh spot and still sound like Plain White T’s.”
The band are set to appear at the second annual When We Were Young Festival this weekend
