Platinum-selling All Time Low have released a brand new single entitled ‘PMA’ (featuring Pale Waves). The track is available today onall streaming platforms, while an accompanying lyric video for the song is streaming on All Time Low’s YouTube channel HERE.
Upholding what has become an undeniable creative partnership in the studio, All Time Low worked with longtime collaborator and producer Zakk Cervini (Blink-182, MGK, Halsey) on the track. ‘PMA’ hinges on effervescent electric hooks as All Time Low’s Alex Gaskarth and Pale Waves’ Heather Baron-Gracie trade-off melodies as they work through their anxiety.
Gaskarth elaborated on the collaboration, “PMA is a journey into isolation and overstimulation. It’s about the little mundane things we do to keep ourselves distracted when loneliness becomes a constant and leaves us feeling apathetic. It’s existential dread wrapped in nervous laughter kissed by the SoCal sun. Heather and Palewaves joining us on this one quite literally brings the hopeful shine to the lyrics, the promise of safety in the shared experience, the understanding we’re all living it together.”
Baron-Gracie added, “I was really happy that Alex asked me to be on the track as I’ve always been a big fan of All Time Low and I loved the song when he sent it over. I really related to the themes, especially the exhausting worry that you’re never doing / being enough in life.”
