Twin Shadow, aka George Lewis Jr., released his last album, Confess, way back in 2012. While we wait to hear news on his follow up album, he's just released "To The Top" to tide us over, and you can listen to the track above. "To The Top" is a big, anthemic hit that sounds like it could've wrapped a John Hughes movie. The feel-good beat and '80s inspiration are juxtaposed with lyrics that speak of troubled love. Twin Shadow writes a moving reflective of the song and the topic of love on the SoundCloud page:

What is it when you realize that someone isn't right for you? Or when you find that you do not and can not posses someone entirely? You want someone so bad and it feels like hell.

It's not like the first time, once loved love evolves, and you no longer have as much control, and it frustrates you. I think because of this feeling we find ourselves constantly wanting to reset, like new years resolutions, like dreaming up moments from the past where the ending flips on its head, like true forgiveness...We just want to say "wait wait wait, this went too far in the wrong direction, can we try that again."

Twin Shadow "To The Top" Lyrics:

Oh, I know it's not the right time tonight
But I won't move until this stops
Go back to the top, oh back to the top

You will never belong to me
Now I can see the light that you are
Never good at controlling me
Now I can see the light shining, oh
And I know, I know it was blinding you
Stay, life can be lone
Wanna know, wanna know, wanna know, wanna know it's true
When you say
You gotta make me believe you

Oh, I know it's not the right time tonight
But I won't move until this stops
Go back to the top, oh back to the top

I'm not scared if you run to me
Lost like when you were mine
You can take what you want from me
Just don't offer me your time
Stay, life can be lone
Wanna know, wanna know, wanna know, wanna know it's true
When you say, I want you around
Gotta make me believe you

Oh, I know it's not the right time tonight
But I won't move until this stops
Go back to the top, oh back to the top

Oh, I know it's not the right time tonight
But I won't move until this stops
Go back to the top, oh back to the top

Oh, I know it's not the right time tonight
But I won't move until this stops
Go back to the top, oh back to the top
