“I lived in Brooklyn from 2014-2019, and one day I was daydreaming about the artists in Brooklyn and how it feels like a waking hallucination if you’re just arriving from a small conservative hometown like mine. The song for me is about choosing to embrace the weird gods of Art, and not instinctually fighting them off because of their weirdness.
This stands as a love letter to a place that almost exists, and which certainly exists in my heart. Don’t try fight it.” – Tyler Lyle, The Midnight
Started by Southern-born singer-songwriter Tyler Lyle and Danish-bred drummer and producer Tim McEwan, The Midnight is rounded out by Lelia Broussard on bass, Royce Whittaker on guitar, and Justin Klunk on saxophone and synth. The expanded line-up has given the band the ability to grow way beyond their synth-heavy beginnings and create music that showcases their ability to write soaring and emotive songs with arena rock chords and infectious pop hooks.
Heroes is The Midnight’s fourth full-length studio album and was produced by McEwan and mixed by Ingmar Carlson (Tate McCrae, Disclosure, Carly Rae Jepsen). Written during the isolation of COVID quarantine, Heroesfaces the feeling of being alone by inviting the whole world to dance under one roof. It’s an album that celebrates the connected nature of man, the way we overcome loss by coming together under one sky and howling at the moon; drinking, hugging, laughing and singing songs at the top of our lungs. The songs on the LP combine Tyler’s all-American dreamer tales seamlessly with Tim’s cinematic soundscapes. These are big, bold and memorable songs about togetherness and trials won by love.
Heroes is set to drop September 9th via Counter Records and you can pre-order/pre-save the album HERE.
