Written by Aly Michalka, AJ Michalka, and Jorge Elbrecht, “Listen!!!” was released on January 15th. It is the second single off their upcoming untitled album, due out this year.
“Listen!!!” sounds very much like their older music, but now more mature and free. Their goal for this album is to take 90’s music and mix it with sounds from the 60’s and 70’s. It has a very synth feel to it in the beginning and it sounds like you are right there in the recording studio with them.
From the lyrics, “Listen!!!” sounds like someone feels like they are trapped in a relationship and their significant other does not listen to them. It is a powerful message in an upbeat song. The almost 4 minute song keeps you pulled in from beginning to end.
This song is the follow-up to their remake and explicit version of their 2007 hit, “Potential Break-Up Song,” which fans went nuts over.
The duo plans to release at least one song each month, leading up to the album to keep fans interested and entertained. 2021 looks to be a big year for Aly & AJ, so stay tuned!
“Listen!!!” is available to stream on all platforms, so be sure to give it a listen and start off 2021 right by having the sisters move up the chart.
