Taking Back Sunday have returned with a new single, “The One,” their first new music in four years.
The song was produced by Tushar Apte and mixed by veteran pop-punk producer Neal Avron.
“This song came from a riff that Shaun Cooper wrote the day he lost his grandmother while she was in a nursing home at the start of the Covid pandemic,” the band said in a statement. “Devastated with overpowering sadness, he found comfort in writing music and initially titled the riff ‘Posivibes’ in an effort to find some light through the darkness.”
They continued, “He never shared the story of the title or how that riff came together with us until after it was complete. Shaun didn’t want his story affecting the ultimate meaning of the song, because it’s actually an uplifting one.”
Taking Back Sunday’s last LP was 2016’s Tidal Waves.
