It’s no secret that we are Pentatonix’s biggest fan (Challenge us, we dare you). The band made waves (literal radio waves) with their newest single “Can’t Sleep Love” — an original track.
Yeah, we know. It’s too exciting to really handle.
The a capella YouTube sensation best known for their stripped down covers are now taking on original music in a way that has us jumping for joy. Their upcoming self-titled album will mark their first ever original album (and third full-length record), and will drop October 16.
So close, yet so far.
After seriously jamming out to “Can’t Sleep Love,” our excitement levels have sky rocketed, leaving us impatient for new music from the dynamic group. We can’t wait for a full album of original music featuring amazing vocals from Scott Hoying, Mitch Grassi and Kirstie Maldonado, beat boxing from Kevin Olusola and the general magic that is Avi Kaplan’s bass notes.
There are countless reasons why we’re counting down the days until Pentatonix and here they are:

What is “Misbehavin'” AND WHY DON’T WE HAVE IT YET?
THERE’S A JASON DERULO COLLAB
IT’S A LOVE SONG. WE CAN’T STOP FREAKING IN ALL CAPS.
Just the fact it was initially released as emojis…

We expect nothing less than creativity from this group.
ALL THE ORIGINAL SONGS
We’re addicted to their sound. They sound amazing in covers and we expect even more fierceness (new word?) from their original tracks.
More of their unique, distinct sound that has us grooving every time
We know we won’t be able to stop dancing after the album is dropped.
The obvious cool-factor of every track
We’re just so ready to jam out
We may or may not have done this dance move while listening to Pentatonix.
Their vocal chemistry
*FINGERS CROSSED* IT WILL EARN ALL THE AWARDS
Obviously, it will.
Because look how far they’ve gotten since Sing Off
We were emotional and then re-lived this performance … Yeah, we’re going to leave y’all with this.
