Echosmith is BACK with new music, everyone!

The band just released the long-awaited track “Goodbye” and we cannot stop listening to it. Opening with a finger-picked acoustic guitar entwined with front-woman Sydney Sierota‘s breathy vocal, the song expresses frustration with a partner’s indecisiveness, building into a danceable refrain colored by island-style keys and heavy bass as she finds the courage to finally say “Goodbye.”

Check out the music video for “Goodbye” below…

“Goodbye” is the first release off their highly-anticipated sophomore album, Inside A Dream, out September 29 via Warner Bros. Records. The 11-track set marks the long-awaited follow-up to the band’s 2013 Gold-certified debut, Talking Dreams, which spawned the triple-platinum breakout hit “Cool Kids.”

Inside A Dream marks a new and exciting direction for the LA-based alt-pop trio, showcasing a more mature and evolved sound. Led by charismatic front-woman Sydney Sierota and rounded out by her brothers Noah (bass) and Graham (drums), the tight-knit siblings had to come to grips with the departure of big brother and guitar player Jamie, who chose to leave the band after the last album in order to spend more time with his wife and son.

“We had to find ourselves as a trio instead of a quartet,” admits Noah.  Sydney explains, “That literally forced us on a journey of having to discover this sound. We still had electric guitars, but they weren’t the center of the music anymore.”

In order to bring that vision to life, the group utilized vintage synths, keys, and drum machines. As a result, Inside A Dream is awash in shimmering synths, airy guitars, and heavenly vocals that wouldn’t be out of place blasting from an eighties transistor radio during an episode of Stranger Things.

If a new album and song wasn’t enough to keep us sane, the band also revealed that they will be going on a six week headlining tour with Banners. The run will kick off on October 5th in Kansas City with stops in Los Angeles, San Diego, Austin, New York, and Nashville. The tour will end on November 26th in Washington, D.C.
