MKTO is back.

The multiplatinum-selling duo is returning with a new song, “Hands Off My Heart”/“Places You Go,” which Billboard is exclusively premiering. 

“We’re so excited to share our new music with all of our fans!” says Malcolm Kelley and Tony Oller (MKTO comes from their combined initials).  “'Hands Off My Heart' and 'Places You Go' tell a two-part story of surrender and the dangers that ensue. It was such a fun challenge unlocking how to fuse the two songs and storylines together. Music has always taken us on adventures and we wanted to take our fans on one.”

Kelley and Oller , who are in the process of recording their sophomore disc (no release date has been determined), first met on set for Nickelodeon’s TV series Gigantic where they learned they both shared musical aspirations. In 2013, the duo signed to Columbia Records and released their self-titled debut album in early 2014. 

“Hands Off My Heart”/“Places You Go” will be officially released on Spotify and iTunes on Friday.
