Last night at Fresh Fall Fest, Fresh 102.7’s Christine Richie had a chance to sit and chat with Ian and Chad of A Great Big World before they took the stage.
“I really wanted to find out about their new album,” says Christine, “because they’ve been teasing us with photos from the studio. Their new song, “Hold Each Other” is all about being in love which is very different from their first album, Is There Anybody Out There.”
We’re all aware by now the emotion the guys pour into their songwriting, so we were curious as to what we’ll hear with the rest of the songs.
Watch above as the guys give Christine the exclusive scoop and, for the first time (much to the surprise to Chad apparently) reveal the name of the new album — due out November 13th!
“It’ll be done Monday,” says Ian about the new album. “We could nit-pick all day, and forever but we kind of have to let go, release it to the world,” says Chad.
And what is the new album called, dare we ask?
“When the Morning Comes,” Ian revealed.
“That’s exclusive,” Chad said, slightly nervous. “I don’t know if we’re allowed to announce that.”
“We’re allowed… we just did,” they laughed in unison. “We’re in a very different head space since we wrote “Say Something” says Chad. “I think it’s sort of the opposite end of the spectrum with this album.”
“I’m getting married next year,” Ian jumped in, explaining “so a lot of the songs are kind of inspired by that lens, just seeing the world for the first time, really.”
