Twenty One Pilots Return With ‘Shy Away’, New Album Announcement

Twenty One Pilots started teasing a new release earlier this year and we just got the payoff. ‘Shy Away’ is the first single from their new album Scaled and Icy. You can put May 21 on your calendar for the release and a live stream performance from the band.

Tickets are on sale now and the experience starts at 8 PM EST. You can secure your passes now via their website and start at $20.

Scaled and Icy is the band’s first album release since 2017s Trench. The band did treat us to the pandemic-inspired single ‘Level of Concern’ last year. The video for ‘Shy Away’ was directed by Miles Cable and A.J. Favicchio and lays it on pretty heavy with the 80s vibes. And that’s ok, we’re feeling it.

LYRICS

When I get home,
You better not be there
We’re placing bets you won’t
Shed your modesty
And the only thing to leave behind
Is your own skin on the floor

Don’t you shy away
Manifest a ceiling when you shy away
Searching for that feeling
Just like an ‘I Love You’
That isn’t words
Like a song he wrote
that’s never heard
Don’t you shh…

When you get home
You barely recognize the pictures they
put in a frame
‘Cause you shed your modesty
Don’t circle the track
Take what you have
and leave your skin on the floor.

Don’t you shy away
Manifest a ceiling when you shy away
Searching for that feeling
Just like an ‘I Love You’
That isn’t words
Like a song he wrote
that’s never heard

When I get home
Boy, you better not be there
You’re long gone
Shed your modesty
Don’t circle the track
Just break the cycle in half
and leave your skin on the floor.

Don’t you shy away
Manifest a ceiling when you shy away
Searching for that feeling
Just like an ‘I Love You’
That isn’t words
Like a song he wrote
that’s never heard

that’s never heard…

an ‘I Love You’
That isn’t words
Like a song he wrote
that’s never heard

Don’t you shy away.
