Our favorite sister duo is ready to release their new album, With Love From, and we’re stoked! Aly & AJ have been releasing iconic bops since 2005 with no signs of slowing down. We got a sneak peek into this new era with releases like ‘After Hours,’ ‘Baby Lay Your Head Down,’ and the title track, ‘With Love From,’ and we’re already obsessed!
To celebrate the upcoming arrival of their newest studio album, we’ve decided to share some fun facts about the project. Along the way, we’ll take a trip down memory lane with some of our favorite Aly & AJ hits!
One of the many iconic songs millennials will remember from the Disney Channel days, ‘Like Whoa’ was the second single off Aly & AJ’s third album, Insomniatic. Relating the thrill of a new relationship to the feeling of being on a rollercoaster, it’s one of their most danceable throwbacks we had on repeat in 2008.
Fun Fact: Aly & AJ recorded With Love From in just one week! They worked with a live band and recorded on an analog tape to highlight their incredible voices and amazing lyrics.
Another adrenaline-pumping single, ‘Rush’ was the self-love motivation we needed! All about embracing your uniqueness and letting your true colors shine, it inspired a new whole new generation of powerful women to follow their dreams.

If you were a fan of the movie Ice Princess, then this song is engrained in your memory. Growing up can be tough when you’re trying to figure yourself out. This relatable track is all about forging your path with bravery and assuring us all we’ll find ourselves someday.
Fun Fact: Aly & AJ took their own advice and made their own way. With Love From is the first time they are credited as co-producers on their album. ‘No One’ is doing it like them!
One of our favorites from their classic discography, ‘Chemicals React’ is about that one person who you connect with on a deep level. No matter what the relationship has gone through, the good or the bad, the love for each other is undeniable.
Fun Fact: Speaking of undeniable connections, With Love From includes additional vocals from singer/songwriter Joy Oladokun.
