What was once thought as a joke turned out to be a brand new twenty one pilots era; With "Shy Away" appearing on charts on the Warner Chappelll Website, and colour banners appearing everywhere around the world (even in Hong Kong, but except mainland China, or course), it's hard to not take this as a serious album announcement.
Then, the next day, Apr. 7, something happened. One person reported on Twitter that he/she heard WNCI 97.9 announced that twenty one pilots new single will be released on 1:00 pm. Another person echoed this by saying his/her father who worked at iHeartRadio is aware of a new single by them at 1:00 pm.
Then at 1:00 pm, the song "Shy Away" released, the video released; new album starts pre-order; merch images that you cannot buy starts floating on the web (hoodies, boxes, ...); a live show at live.twentyonepilots.com is on sale for only $20 - it's going to stream on live.twentyonepilots.com at 8:00 pm EDT on May. 21.
Tyler did an interview with BBC Radio 1's with "Shy Away" as the "Hottest Record", saying that he started writing the track as a tutorial "on how to how to lay out a song", then "became a letter of advice to his brother" Jay Joseph (who recently released a record of his own); He also said the new album is "more colourful" with him "in a more positive headspace" and this new album cover was inspired by a toy dinosaur in his recording studio.
"So I've been staring at this [dragon] dude and if I can get to a place where... all of a sudden, he can grow and fly around the room, then I am transported to a completely different place. It really is the power of creativity, the power of imagination and, ultimately, the power of music. And that's something that I'm experimenting with on this record."
- Tyler was wearing a jacket with the "Good Day Dema" logo on it in the USB video, nobody spotted it until now.
- So merch is selling both on live.twentyonepilots.com and store.twentyonepilots.com; But the US version of the merch store is only selling CD at the moment, while the EU/UK/AU webstore has T-shirts, tape and more bundles on sale.
- On live.twentyonepilots.com, 6 items are currently selling; but there's a notice that said "Item 1 April 14" and "Shy Away capsule collection drops Apr 12".
原本以为是个笑话，结果却是一个全新的二十一飞行员时代；"Shy Away "出现在Warner Chappelll网站的排行榜上，彩色横幅出现在世界各地（甚至在香港，但中国大陆除外，当然）。
泰勒以《Shy Away》作为 "最热单曲 "接受了Radio 1《最热唱片》的采访，他说自己写这首歌是作为 "如何布置歌曲 "的教程，然后 "成了给弟弟 "杰伊-约瑟夫（Jay Joseph，最近他自己也出了一张唱片）的建议信；他还说新专辑 "更加丰富多彩"，他 "头脑更加积极"，而这张新专辑封面的灵感来自于他录音室里的一只玩具恐龙。
- 泰勒在USB视频中穿着一件印有 "Good Day Dema "标志的外套，直到现在才有人发现。
- 在live.twentyonepilots.com上，目前有6件商品在售；但有通知说 "商品1 4月14日 "和 "Shy Away胶囊系列4月12日发售"。
