Today, they’ve shared another new single titled ‘Stacking Chairs’, a rousing pop cut that’s simultaneously anthemic and deeply intimate, with lyrics that see singer Hannah Joy reflecting on her marriage to bandmate Tim Fitz.
“I never thought I was going to get married – I didn’t think I would be able to love someone forever. I was scared that I would feel trapped and suffocated or alternatively leave or be left with a pile of ash and rubble,” Joy explained in a statement.
“Going on the journey of marriage with Tim has been profound. It is very liberating having someone see you in your entirety and stay. Tim embodies that kind of ‘stacking chairs’ love – he’s not just about the party. He’s around afterward when I’m tired and ugly and loves me in those moments.”
Middle Kids recorded Today We’re the Greatest in Los Angeles with producer Lars Stalfors. The follow-up to 2019 EP New Songs for Old Problems and 2018 debut Lost Friends is set to arrive Friday, 19th March. This May, the band will set off on their first headline Australian tour in almost two years.
