Twin Shadow is now two for two with pop hits boasting absolutely huge choruses that sound as if they could have been recorded any time in the past 20 years.

“To The Top” is his first original material since last year’s bouncy “Old Love / New Love,” and comes along with the news that he is “currently in the studio working on the follow up to his critically acclaimed 2012 release Confess.” The song was recorded in Los Angeles at Hollywood Forever Cemetery & Studio Zapata Zabala with Wynne Bennet, and is shared with the following message:

What is it when you realize that someone isn’t right for you? Or when you find that you do not and can not posses someone entirely? You want someone so bad and it feels like hell.

It’s not like the first time, once loved love evolves, and you no longer have as much control, and it frustrates you. I think because of this feeling we find ourselves constantly wanting to reset, like new years resolutions, like dreaming up moments from the past where the ending flips on its head, like true forgiveness…We just want to say “wait wait wait, this went too far in the wrong direction, can we try that again.

Can Twin Shadow sing all the big, emotional choruses please? Listen to “To The Top” below.

UPDATE: The song is no longer available for free download.
