Neil and Kimberly Perry of The Band Perry perform at the "Comeback Kid" single release party at Ruby in Nashville, Tenn. on Aug. 1, 2016.

The Band Perry has completed their transition from country to pop with the release of "Stay in the Dark," the first release from the new album My Bad Imagination.

The trio dropped “Stay In The Dark,” a lively piece of power-pop, at midnight. “Who knows what we’re missing/It’s our world, it’s our business/Here I am I’m with you on a mission/We  got tunnel vision/Lately, things been getting so crazy/Feeling like my heart hates me,” sings Kimberly Perry.

Earlier on Thursday, the band confirmed they've been hard at work on their very first pop LP. “We’ve made an album for you,” the announcement reads. “Creating it has been the most exciting thing we’ve ever done. It’s led us to disrupt everything that was comfortable and familiar to us a short year ago. If there’s one thing we’ve learned in making it it’s this – being yourself matters. It matters even when not everyone agrees that you should be or understands why it’s important that you are.”

"Stay in the Dark" is the band’s first release after an eventful year which saw the Grammy-winning country sibling act part ways with Big Machine Label Group’s Republic Nashville imprint and sign with Universal Music Group. 

My Bad Imagination will be the group’s third album following their self-titled 2010 debut (No. 4 peak on the Billboard 200) and 2013’s Pioneer (No. 2 peak).
