The Midnight Unveil Endearing New Single "Brooklyn. Friday. Love."

The Midnight return with an anthemic, infectious pop track titled "Brooklyn. Friday. Love.", a playful ode to the hip New York borough from which it takes its name.

Speaking on the record, Tyler shares: “I lived in Brooklyn from 2014-2019, and one day I was daydreaming about the artists in Brooklyn and how it feels like a waking hallucination if you're just arriving from a small conservative hometown like mine. The song for me is about choosing to embrace the weird gods of Art, and not instinctually fighting them off because of their weirdness.. This stands as a love letter to a place that almost exists, and which certainly exists in my heart. Don't try fight it.”

It follows recent singles "Avalanche", "Heartbeat" and "Change Your Heart Or Die", with all four tracks set to feature on The Midnight’s forthcoming album 'Heroes'. For a band that started as a synth-heavy duo, the LP signifies a shift in sonic direction towards fully-realised, arena-worthy songs.

'Heroes' will be the final in a trilogy of albums that started with 2018’s 'Kids', which reached #1 on the Billboard Dance/Electronic Chart, and was followed in 2020 with 'Monsters', which sold over 50,000 equivalent albums worldwide, charting in the US, UK and Australia and sold out in every format, amassing 50 million+ streams within 18 months after its release. “For me, Kids is self-knowledge, Monsters is self-love, and then Heroes is empathy,” said Lyle. “I got into depth psychology and this idea of aetiology, the way a human forms. “The world doesn't get better but we do. We grow into ourselves. We grow into our voice.” 

"Brooklyn. Friday. Love." is the encapsulation of The Midnight’s breathtaking, fully-fledged new sound.
