NEW MUSIC: WALK THE MOON | CAN YOU HANDLE MY LOVE??
Frontman Nicholas Petricca of Walk the Moon releases their latest single, “Can You Handle My Love??” Produced by Tommy English and Mike Crossey, “Can You Handle My Love??,” a collaboration with K.Flay and Tommy English (BORNS, Kacey Musgraves), opens up instrumentally from the guitar- and synth-stealth tracks with a more piano-led chant, a track Petricca calls a self-love anthem. “For me, it’s being at a point in my life, where I’m really seeing myself fully through the dark and the light and the imperfections and enjoying owning that,” he says, “and how ridiculous it is to try and be perfect.” Working through the pandemic remotely, frontman Nicholas Petricca, guitarist Eli Maiman and drummer Sean Waugaman sifted through old demos and new songs, piecing together their fifth studio album "Heights," dropping in fall 2021. Many of the tracks on their upcoming album are songs that Walk the Moon wrote all the way back in 2012, and this works because Walk the Moon makes the kind of music that we will all probably still be listening to another decade from now. As it stands, “Can You Handle My Love??” is a danceable sweet 16 party-ready track that references hard drugs and self-knowledge, all while being recognizably Walk the Moon.
