The Summer Set have released their latest single, “FTS” featuring Travie McCoy, taken from their upcoming album, Blossom. The track serves as an ode to the last two years of uncertainty and a reminder to listeners to take a breath, focus on themselves, and let the rest go. Listen to it now below.
“We wrote the first version of this song almost 8 years ago, so it’s crazy to us that it’s finally gonna see the light of day,” shares vocalist Brian Logan Dales. “It’s our own little gospel about how important it is to mind your own business, love who you love, and do whatever it is that makes you happy. Life is short. Do what you love and drown out the rest.”
“We threw a Hail Mary and asked Travie McCoy to feature on this song at the very last minute and hearing him yell “It’s Travie!” on a Summer Set song in 2022 is so surreal,” he says on working with Travie McCoy. “In all seriousness though, Travie gave this song some real heart, and reminded us that the silver lining of 2020 was that everyone had a chance to slow down, work on themselves, and carve out some space to grow. We’re honored he’s a part of it.”
The band’s newest album Blossom, part one of a two-part release, will be released on September 9th. The album features “FTS” alongside previously released singles “Street Lightning”, “Back Together”, “Teenagers” (feat. Against The Current), and “Hard Candy”, and is entirely produced by The Summer Set’s own John and Stephen Gomez (Dabin, TWIN XL, Sophia Scott, Glitch Mob).
“By definition, Blossom means ‘to mature or develop in a promising or healthy way.’ So, that’s what we did,” says Dales. “We had to go our separate ways as a band for a few years so we could all bloom into the people we’ve become today. This is an album about growth and togetherness. About letting go of the past and looking forward to the future.”
