Dance like Nobody‘s Watching – Can’t Stop The Feeling
We were so stoked to hold the first copy of our new album, Uncharted, that we immediately had to go see how people would react to it. We hope you enjoy the video!
We’ve titled our sixth album with Sony “Uncharted” for several reasons. First, we’ve now ventured deeper into “uncharted” territory than we could have ever dreamed of traversing. We’ve been more places, met more people, and had more opportunities than we could have imagined possible. We feel blessed to have been supported, even guided in this journey by so many people that have given us the purpose behind pushing through the underbrush. Second, we feel like our music isn’t limited to a specific genre or “chart” — we hope it transcends conventional classification and instead reaches beyond boundaries, finding audiences from all walks of life that want positive content and fresh takes on old and new music. Third, it is actually very difficult to accurately “chart” our music into sheet music since it features so many unprecedented and untranscribable sounds. In this sense we are playing off the chart, so to speak. 🙂 And lastly, two of the tunes on the album feature two more locations that further fulfill our Wonders of the World quest, Chichen Itza and Petra — both of which are considered two of the greatest “uncharted” archeological finds in history! Combine all of these elements with more of our signature fusion of film score, classical music, pop and original music, our first vocal single, and even more groundbreaking textures and sounds, we believe this to be our best record yet. We can’t wait for people to hear it!
