Read on to see all 10 songs and their reasoning behind each track. Pre-order Good Times Ahead on iTunes before it drops tomorrow, Oct. 7.
1. Glass Animals - Gooey
This song is so nice to listen to! No matter who we've shown it to, there is just good vibes all around. This band really inspired us to focus on making every song on our album strong enough to stand on its own.
2. Rufus - Innerbloom (What So Not Remix)
This song is the perfect amount of vibes and turn up! It's so good.
3. Vince Staples - Norf Norf
This is the first track that we heard from Vince Staples that just made us go nuts!! Been loving everything he's been putting out since, especially this new one he did, "Lil Bit Of This" ;]
