Taking Back Sunday are, ahem, back with their first new music in four years!

Adam Lazzara and co. have today (June 30) shared new single and video The One, which they describe as “a sweet love song – full-on John Cusack holding a boombox”.

“We’ve been waiting a long time to share this song and we’re so excited that we finally can,” the band add. “We hope you love it as much as we do.”

Detailing its genesis, they continue: “This song came from a riff that Shaun Cooper wrote the day he lost his grandmother while she was in a nursing home at the start of the COVID pandemic. Devastated with overpowering sadness, he found comfort in writing music and initially titled the riff ‘Posivibes’ in an effort to find some light through the darkness. He never shared the story of the title or how that riff came together with us until after it was complete. Shaun didn’t want his story affecting the ultimate meaning of the song, because it’s actually an uplifting one.”
