twenty one pilots: Go behind the scenes on the video for Shy Away
Emily Carter

Following the single's release last week, twenty one pilots have shared a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the video for Shy Away.

Racking up almost 12 million views in less than a week, Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun's wonderfully colourful new video now gets an even deeper-dive than their rabid fanbase have no doubt done already. Not only that, but it's great to see the duo interacting and hanging out together again in their always-hilarious way after a year away from the limelight, working on upcoming album Scaled And Icy.

Frontman Tyler told the BBC last week of twenty one pilots' new single: "In the song Shy Away, in the very beginning – if you were to replay the very beginning part – you’ll hear this little baby cooing noise, and it’s actually because when I was first working on the song, [my daughter] was in the room with me and I had my phone out just singing something into a voice memo. So I’m still finding things to be inspired by, and I’m really excited that that fire isn’t going down yet."
