We always discussed releasing an album of twenty one pilots lullabies, but for some reason it always evaded us,” says Casey. It only took seven-plus years of making these albums for it to finally happen.”

Detailing how they adapted twenty one pilots’ genre-hopping material, Casey continues: When you break these songs down to their bare bones, you can definitely hear how hauntingly beautiful Tyler [Joseph, frontman]‘s melodies are.

Some of these songs were a challenge to transpose. In songs like Ride and Heathens where the melodies are rapid-fire, we had to simplify them.”
