We The Kings surprised fans with a brand-new single, “Turn It Up.” The new song comes just two weeks after their epic collab with upcoming tourmates Simple Plan and State Champs, “Where I Belong.”

The band began teasing the new song yesterday on Twitter, writing, “Breathe in breathe out breathe in… new song tonight at midnight 👀”

Upon release, the band shared, “Bet you didn’t think you’d be hearing a new WTK song tonight, did you? 😂 TURN IT UP out now on all platforms! 😱”

Prior to “Turn It Up” and their “Where I Belong” collab, We The Kings released a holiday album at the end of last year. Seasons Greetings From The Sandbar included two original tracks (“There Is A Light,” “One People”) and eight classic holiday songs such as “Baby It’s Cold Outside” and “Jingle Bells.”

One of the featured vocalists, Elena Coats, is noted for her collaboration with the band in their 2013 track “Sad Song.” WTK also recently released their sixth full-length studio album Six this past summer, which is available here.
