The talented a cappella supergroup Pentatonix has been releasing pop covers since 2011, garnering legions of fans and more than nine million views on YouTube.
Now the band is releasing its first full-length album of original music (well, with one cover, of Shai’s “If I Ever Fall In Love”) with Pentatonix.
“Being in the industry, you have to know the ins and outs, the formulas, how everything works,” Mitch Grassi told USA Today. “We learned even more working with pop writers.”
After winning NBC’s The Sing-Off in 2011, Pentatonix released three studio albums, several EPs and numerous YouTube covers. (That’s Christmas to Me was one of only three albums to sell a million copies last year.)
This album, though, represents a leap into the big leagues.
“We’ve always had very humble ways of doing things — like do it in a closet or record on the road,” Scott Hoying said. “RCA has put us in really nice studios; they’ve given us a real production team for our videos.”
Below, check out the video for “Can’t Sleep Love,” the first single off Pentatonix.
Pentatonix is available on iTunes now.
