Following the explicit release of their 2007 hit single ‘Potential Break Up Song,’ the sister duo is giving us more! After experiencing a blow-up on TikTok, the sisters have blessed us with so much coming into this new year. Aly & AJ told us to do one thing: ‘Listen!!!,’ and that is exactly what we’re gonna do!
With the help of a few legends, such as Heart’s Nancy Wilson and Jack Tatum of Wild Nothing, the song is a certified hit. ‘Listen!!!’ doesn’t stray from the band’s OG sound, as the track fits into the style of their album Insomniatic. With lyrics such as “express what I feared from the start,” the song follows a theme similar to ‘Potential Breakup Song.’
Aly says that ‘Listen!!!’ is about feeling trapped by a relationship or system. It’s a reminder that you might be lost, but you always know your way out.
Being able to create this song with the great Jorge Elbrecht felt like a breakthrough for our songwriting. We’re honored to have a longtime mentor & hero of ours, Nancy Wilson of Heart on this track, along with the super talented Jack Tatum of Wild Nothing.Aly Michalka
“Aly and AJ are such good people,” said the legendary Nancy Wilson. “I’ve always loved collaborating with these two. I sang and played on their song ‘Listen!!!’. It really caught my attention and I found myself really getting into it. Can’t wait to hear the whole album!”
According to co-writer Jorge Elbrecht, writing the single could not have been more effortless and enjoyable. “Aly & AJ are brimming with ideas and have a very sharp sense of what works for their music. They are incredible & complimentary talents as singers, and I was so happy to be a part of the process. Also thrilled that the amazing Jack Tatum, as well as a childhood hero of mine, Nancy Wilson, are singing on the track!”
