Moon Taxi Premieres Slick, Hook-Heavy 'Year Zero' From New LP

Moon Taxi
Joshua Wilkins Black

What would a stop at Lollapalooza be without some new tunes to get down with? For Moon Taxi, still pretty fun -- they've got a pair of studio albums under their belt -- but this new single gives their fan base something to get excited over at Lolla and beyond.

The new song is called "Year Zero," and it's the first single from their forthcoming LP Daybreaker. Check it out below, premiering exclusively via Billboard:

"It's a song about leaving the past behind to find a better tomorrow," guitarist Spencer Thomson says of the jubilant, hook-laden track, produced by Jacquire King. "It's about embracing independence and facing an uncertain future. We felt like it was a great opening track for the album from a thematic standpoint. It's been a really fun song to play live."
