LOS ANGELES, CA- On June 12th, The Aces will be releasing their sophomore album, Under My Influence, via Red Bull Records.  They celebrated the announcement by releasing a new single, “My Phone Is Trying To Kill Me”. It’s the third single that they’ve dropped this year, following the insanely popular “Daydream” (over 1.5 million streams in its first week!) and “Lost Angeles“.

Written by The Aces alongside Justin Tranter (Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande) and produced by Zach Skelton (Jonas Brothers, Shawn Mendes), “My Phone Is Trying To Kill Me” delves into the pressures of social media and the attachment one can feel to their digital devices. A topic that seems quite relevant during these quarantine days where everybody is either glued to their computers and cell phones, the song highlights the paradoxically curious effect that technology can not only bring people together but also bring on feelings of isolation.

Of their forthcoming album, the band has said:

“When we set out to write ‘Under My Influence,’ we didn’t know exactly what would come out. All we knew was there was one rule. If you felt too vulnerable, if it scared you, then you had to keep going. Every time we wrote a song, that was our mentality […] We knew we wanted to come back with an album that left everybody feeling like The Aces would never make the same thing twice. These songs are truly the stories of our lives. ‘Under My Influence’ means so many things to us, but above all, it means unapologetically becoming who you are.”

Keep an eye out for that new album. We’re sure it’s going to be pop-perfection.
