Fitz and the Tantrums have unveiled their brand new single “123456”.” The track is accompanied by an electrifying music video, streaming now on their official YouTube channel.
“123456” is the first single from Fitz and the Tantrums’ much anticipated new album, due out later this year. Fitz said, “‘123456’ has a fun and carefree vibe, but it’s actually quite an emotional song personally. Before writing the song, I was questioning my talent, fighting off insecurities. The music to ‘123456’ literally pulled me out of a funk and hyped me up. And so the lyric goes: ‘hyped up ready to go, I got my eyes on the prize, I’m sick of feeling the lows I wanna roll with the highs’. It was the turning point of the record for me, capturing the moment when optimism, hope and confidence were found after a dark period. “123456” marks the first new music from the band since 2016’s acclaimed self-titled album, which featured their biggest song to date, “HandClap.” That track has logged more than 400 MILLION worldwide streams and 75 MILLION views to date on YouTube, while enjoying top 5 chart success at multi-format radio and being certified 2x-Platinum in U.S. by the RIAA. This summer, Fitz and the Tantrums will embark on a massive North American co-headlining tour with Young The Giant kicking off at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheater in CO on June 12, with dates continuing into August, including a special, homecoming show at The Forum in Los Angeles on August 10.
