O-Town Returns With 'Skydive' Single, Sets August Album Release
O-Town's decade-long hiatus from recorded music officially ends on Wednesday (May 28) with the comeback single "Skydive," from the forthcoming album "Lines & Circles." Listen to the guys give it their all -- or nothing at all -- below:
The "Liquid Dreams" auteurs have decided to slow things down in a manner similar to Backstreet Boys' underrated single "Incomplete," as the quartet (nope, Ashley Parker Angel is still not present) promises to change your world over canned percussion and somber keys. Co-written by Samuel Adams and Marcel Wildy, "Skydive" was co-produced by O-Town member Jacob Underwood alongside Mark Suhonen.
"'Skydive' is a dramatic song," O-Town's Trevor Penick confirms. "It starts with a simple piano and vocal, and by the end you hear a seventy-piece orchestra, and all four of us belting it out in 4-part harmony."
"Lines & Circles," due out on Aug. 3, will be O-Town's third full-length and first album since 2002's "O2." The foursome announced an official reunion at the end of March, 10 years after the group disbanded in 2004.
"We started this reunion purely for the fun of it," said Underwood. "We had discussed a summer tour to perform our old songs and finally give the fans what they’ve been asking us for the last 10 years. However, once we began working, what developed was something a little more ambitious. The ideas kept flying and we couldn’t help but start making new music."
