Along with the release date confirmation, we've gotten our first whiff of its lead single, a collaboration between label heavy hitters Seven Lions and Jason Ross. "Higher Love" is delivered in typical fashion, with expansive, emotional big room chords and sensitive vocals from Mutemath's Paul Meany. "Higher Love" speaks to the synergy within the label's favorite artists, echoed by Ross: "
"working with Jeff was a breeze and felt completely natural. We really trusted each-other's creative sense and just built on idea after idea. We knew at the start that we wanted a powerful track that displayed both of our styles, and we think we did just that.”
