Not to mention there's another leaked song with the lyrics "Well I've been deep in this sleeplessness I don't know why. Just can't get away from myself. When I get back on my feet I'll blow this open wide, and carry me home in good health." It's still techy, but that's very much the lyrics I'm used to. Can't wait to see what they come up with!

E X A C T L Y. I trust Josh. We all know what he is capable of, and we’ve seen previews here and there. It’s going to be a brilliant album. Unfortunately, so many people are still caught up in this “pop music isn’t real music” elitist bullshit, so it’s difficult to get some to see the bigger picture. (Also, I really can’t wait to hear what that small preview turns into).

Okay, listen up. I am not justifying any “Pop 101 is too mainstream and different” asks that are sent my way by answering them. This is the only thing I’ll say about it:

Everyone is entitled to their opinion, yes. However, let us not forget just one album previous with Haven’t Had Enough. That was Ever After's lead single, and a “”“mainstream”“” pop song if I ever heard one. It also sounds nothing like other, larger parts of the record. The same with Celebrity Status for Masterpiece Theatre! Listening to a Marianas Trench album is an experience… it’s damn near whiplash. 

Think about it - Desperate Measures doesn’t sound anything like No Place Like Home and Acadia doesn’t sound anything like Masterpiece Theatre I

Pop 101 is a great lead single choice, and it is in no way indicative of what the rest of the next album will sound like. So, I invite everyone flooding my inbox with wary messages to take a breath. Josh said himself that he’ll never write the same album twice, and this is the first thing we’ve heard in 3 years. This is a time to celebrate! 

Because apparently one time wasn’t enough, here it is again. Any “Marianas Trench used to play MUSIC. I don’t know what the fuck this is”-type asks will be immediately deleted. Opinions aren’t the same as idiotic elitism. Thanks, friends. :)

Pop 101 thanks from Marianas Trench :)

A little while back, I did an AMA (ask me anything) on Reddit. I ended up getting a lot of hilarious flak about ‘Call Me Maybe,’ which inspired me to write a list of instructions on how to create a huge pop song. I basically went on to write lyrics that explain step by step exactly what’s happening in the music at that moment. It’s meant to illustrate how big artists do their thing, like a magician revealing his secrets to an audience. It definitely pokes a lot of fun but it’s also meant as a tip of the hat to those artists. Above all, it’s very me - clever, silly and sassy to the core.
