A Great Big World

"Is There Anybody Out There?"

Producer: Dan Romer

Label: Black Magnetic/Epic Records

Release Date: Jan. 21

A Great Big World scored one of 2013's most surprising radio hits with "Say Something," a teary breakup ballad that was rerecorded with Christina Aguilera. The duo's debut is as uniformly earnest as the somber lead single, but it's also livelier, with songs like "There Is an Answer" and "Land of Opportunity" offering quirky optimism and snappy tempos. -Jason Lipshutz
