After a particularly successful month with the release of “Centuries” Chicago’s Fall Out Boy returns with “Immortals” the first song to come from Disney’s next release “Big Hero 6”.
“Immortals” is a complete departure from “Centuries” and even their last record release. The opening beat of the song is reminiscent of something you’d hear in a club. Something almost like a hip hop beat that drops into a strong vocals led by lead singer Patrick Stump. The song begins a transformation about a minute in and you can hear a distinct Fall Out Boy sound, but it still retains the electronic beat from the beginning.
Stump croons “we can be immortals…” on a backdrop of electronic beats that weave in and out on a rock beat and a prominent bass drum that leads through the whole song. Though due to this electronic beat that runs in and out of the chorus line, unlike many other Fall Out Boy songs you don’t have that feature of the instruments that many fans have become accustomed to. This is a huge departure from the early days of Fall Out Boy and it is a more grown up and edgier sound for the band. Though nonetheless they still retain their image of who they are and the music is still very much Fall Out Boy.
“Immortals” is available on iTunes now for download, though the band has mentioned that if it isn’t it can be found sometime next week. More information about Disney’s “Big Hero 6” can be found on Disney’s website and the movie will be hitting theaters on November 7.
