Twenty One Pilots 'Scaled And Icy': Air time, how to live stream, concept and all you need to know about album's debut at virtual fan event
The band released the first track of the 11-track album earlier in April 2021
Grammy-winning musical duo Twenty One Pilots have announced the launch of their new single 'Choker' at an upcoming fan event. The band, comprising Josh Dun and Tyler Joseph, has confirmed the debut of their sixth album 'Scaled And Icy'. The new album will soon be launched through a virtual launch extravaganza which will last for six weeks. Fans can attend the event with tickets, similar to a concert.
In their latest statement, the band informed that their fans can buy the tickets for the event to "unlock a six-week interactive experience – your direct access to limited merchandise and special editions of the new album, Scaled And Icy." 'Choker', the second track on the same album will debut during the event. The first track of the album, 'Shy Away', was released earlier in April 2021, which featured cooing noises made by Joseph's one-year-old daughter.
The album will debut virtually on May 21, 2021, but the second track 'Choker' will be launched way early on April 29, 2021. Fans with tickets can access the portal and listen to 'Choker' anytime.
'Scaled And Icy' is an 11-track record album primarily produced and written by Joseph. The singer composed the tracks at his home studio while he was forced to isolate during the pandemic. Meanwhile, his musical partner Dun synchronized the drums remotely from another part of the country and that was how the album eventually came together.
"‘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”, stated a press release.
