New single “Love From The Other Side” available now
Fall Out Boy has announced that their eighth studio album, So Much (For) Stardust, will arrive March 24th. The band also shares the first glimpse of the new music with the release of first single “Love From The Other Side.” In tandem with the song’s release, the band has also unveiled the music video directed by David Braun and Open The Portal.
“Technology has made it really easy to make records much more quickly these days. There’s nothing wrong with that, and that spontaneity can be exciting,” shares FOB’s Patrick Stump. “But we wanted to get back to the way we used to work. We wanted to make a record that was really lovingly crafted and deliberate and patiently guided – like someone cooked you a delicate meal. I’m not a very proud guy, but I’m pretty proud of this record.”
So Much (For) Stardust marks a homecoming for the band on multiple fronts. The first of which found the band reuniting with renowned producer Neal Avron, whom they’ve worked with on three previous albums (From Under the Cork Tree, Infinity on High, Folie à Deux). Additionally, So Much (For) Stardust will be released on Fueled By Ramen/Elektra – Fall Out Boy’s first album with the label since their 2003 debut album Take This to Your Grave, which celebrates its 20th anniversary on May 6th.
Tonight (Wed, Jan 18th), the band will appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to perform the broadcast debut of “Love From The Other Side.” The show airs on ABC at 11:35 pm ET/PT, and is available next day on Hulu. Pete and Patrick will also appear on The Zane Lowe Show on Apple Music this morning to discuss the new single.
Anticipation for the record started brewing in November, after a mysterious ad appeared in the Chicago Tribune and continued building with multiple teaser sites in December, the latter of which featured a clay animation video titled “A Claymation Fall Out Boy Celebration” on Christmas that included a quick audio preview of “Love From The Other Side” for eagle-eared fans. On January 11th, the band officially revealed the single’s release date just days before they took the stage at the 2023 iHeartRadio ALTer EGO on Saturday (Jan 14th) in Los Angeles, CA.
So Much (For) Stardust is Fall Out Boy’s first new studio album since 2018’s M A N I A, which garnered a Grammy nomination for Best Rock Album and marked their third consecutive and fourth overall No. 1 album.
Most recently, Fall Out Boy embarked on The Hella Mega Tour in July 2021 alongside Green Day and Weezer, playing live in front of over one million fans on a sold out global stadium tour.
