To fill the between-albums void created by indie-pop-rock bands Foster The People and fun., we now have A Great Big World. That may seem like a cynical way to put things, but, hey — those are the acts this duo reminds us of, and, anyway, that’s not necessarily a bad thing. You know A Great Big World, of course, from their current Top 10 hit “Say Something,” which now comes served with a hefty side of Christina Aguilera. (A further connection to the Voice family: the guys will open for Maroon 5 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas on December 30 and December 31.)
A Great Big World’s debut album Is There Anybody Out There? is slated for a January 14 release, and ahead of that, they’ve now premiered new song “I Really Want It.” It’s way more peppy than sad ballad “Say Someting,” and kind of sounds like — you guessed it — fun.
Head below to hear the upbeat piano pop jam.
