X Ambassadors have released their powerful and redemptive new single “Joyful” today.
Written and produced by X Ambassadors, mixed by Manny Marroquin (Rihanna, Sia, Bastille) and mastered by Joe LaPorta (David Bowie, Calle 13), the song is an emotionally raw and impassioned reminder to take a deep breath when the world is crashing down and do the hardest thing – simply appreciate being alive. “Joyful” will appear on the band’s new album by the same name which is set for release this spring on KIDinaKORNER/Interscope Records.
Fans can pre-order the album in special configurations now and get early access to tickets for
X Ambassadors’ spring headline tour which will be announced very soon.
“Joyful” is accompanied by a moving music video that was directed by award winning filmmaker and actress Tess Harrison and visually picks up where the video for last single “Ahead of Myself” left off. Once again X Ambassadors’ Sam Harris has opted to sing live for the filming and “Joyful” finds him joined by the band – his brother Casey Harris and Adam Levin – and a gospel choir, all of whom are singing live as well. The video was shot at the historic Los Angeles Theater in downtown LA and in addition to Sam’s vocals, the music and choir were all captured live as well.
