twenty one pilots tackle the pressures of adulthood in their new song and video for “Stressed Out” from their impending album Blurryface (out May 19).
It’s a sentiment any recent entrant into adulthood can relate to: “Wish we could turn back time/To the good old days/When our mom would sing us to sleep/But now we’re stressed out.”
The duo pair Tyler Joseph’s poignant lyrics with dreary day imagery and a typical neighborhood play-date scenario enacted by the now solemn-faced adults for maximum emotional impact.
My name’s Blurryface, and I care what you think.
