Watch the video for All Time Low’s huge new single, Once In A Lifetime
Of the song – which was written with Wake Up, Sunshine collaborators Zakk Cervini and Andrew Goldstein – frontman Alex Gaskarth explains, “Once In A Lifetime is a song about loss and dealing with loss, facing harsh realities and coming out the other side stronger for it. We wrote this song in bleaker times, in a world still asleep at the wheel that left us all relearning how to navigate the uncertain roads ahead, but ultimately there is a hopeful undertone to the entire sentiment. Things can only be so bad and once it’s over, it’s over; there’s room to start rebuilding. This song feels like it’s cut from the same cloth as [chart-topping 2020 single] Monsters: a progression and continued evolution from the celebration of All Time Low that was Wake Up, Sunshine.”

Speaking to Kerrang! about what Once In A Lifetime means in terms of future music, Alex revealed, “I don’t know where this next thing is going yet – we’ve written a few new songs, and I don’t know if that means we’re going to make another album or if it’s going to be just some songs, or if it’s going to be an extended version of the last record or whatever. But it certainly feels like it’s all kind of an evolution of Wake Up, Sunshine, and it’s a continuation of that with some story-building in mind. I really liked what Taylor Swift did during this whole shutdown and everything, where she put out her first folky record [Folklore], and then immediately followed it up almost with sort of a sister album [Evermore], and it all feels like one big body of work when you listen to it together. I think that could be something that maybe we’re working towards… perhaps!” So watch this space…
