AWOLNATION have released “The Best,“ the debut single from their forthcoming studio album. The new album, which will be the band’s fourth full-length release, will be their first with Better Noise Music. The album will feature Rivers Cuomo of Weezer and Alex Ebert of Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros.
Songwriter and musician Aaron Bruno said of the new single, “I’m always on the journey to improving myself, but all along, knowing it’s close to impossible to really be the best at anything. And what does it mean to be the best? And does that really matter? Or maybe it is more about the journey and acceptance of comfort within one’s own existence.”
“I wanted to make a video that felt like some of my favorite childhood adventure movies and create something that has a magical feeling of the autumn season,” said Bruno of the video, which was directed by Amalia Irons.
