heroes is the fourth studio album by The Midnight and was produced and mixed by McEwan Ingmar Karlson (Tate McCrae, disclosure, Carly Rae Jepsen). Written during COVID quarantine isolation, heroes meets the feeling of loneliness by inviting the whole world to dance under one roof. It’s an album that celebrates the connected nature of human beings, the way we overcome loss by coming together under one sky and howling at the moon; Drink, hug, laugh and sing at the top of your lungs. The songs on the LP seamlessly blend Tyler’s all-American dreamer stories with Tim’s cinematic soundscapes. These are big, bold and unforgettable songs about togetherness and trials won by love.
heroes will be released on September 9th via Counter Records and you can pre-order/pre-save the album HERE.
