Tyler Joseph has just announced that twenty one pilots’ new album is going to be coming out a week later than originally announced.

In a new video update, the frontman explains that his ambitious idea to give every song on Clancy an accompanying music video means that the band just “need a little bit more time” – so therefore the record will be dropping on May 24 instead of May 17, so they can release them all in time.

“When I first told Josh [Dun, drummer] and Mark [Eshleman, collaborator] and everyone on our team that I wanted to do a music video for every song on the album Clancy that’s coming up, I told them it’s because I love these songs, and I believe in them enough to pretend to sing in front of a camera to each one,” he explains. “And that’s what we’re going to do, because that’s how I want to present this album.

“But because of that,” Tyler adds, “in order to accomplish that, we need a little bit more time – that’s why I’m making this video. We’re going to push the album back by one week, to May 24.”

After briefly stopping to play a couple of notes on the piano, he then finishes up: “Isn’t that exciting? Just a little more time. Just a little, little more time.”

In the immediate future, though, on Thursday, April 25 the band will drop new single Backslide, along with a video directed by Josh.
