Get your umbrellas and headphones ready because Marianas Trench just dropped their latest single, “Lightning And Thunder,” via 604 Records/Warner Music Canada. After teasing their single for a week across their social platforms, you can finally add it to your playlists. Previously, the Canadian pop act made their major 2024 return with their triumphant track, “A Normal Life.” The track was surprise dropped on April 26, 2024. “A Normal Life” marked the group’s first new music since the release of 2019’s full-length album, Phantoms.

Speaking on the inspiration of their latest offering, which was written and produced by lead vocalist Josh Ramsay, he says, “Every story begins with a call to adventure. ‘Lightning And Thunder’ is about finding out my partner and I were going to have our first child. [It] is probably the biggest call to adventure I’m ever going to experience.”

“Now we’re falling/We’ll never ever be the same/Fate is calling/It’s turning burning in my veins/It’s stronger and harder/Than lightning and thunder,” Ramsay sings over sunny pop synth beats and glistening vocal harmonies. After announcing on social media on July 6, 2022, that the group was “prepping for the new Marianas Trench album,” hopefully, “Lightning And Thunder” is the first of plenty of new music to come from the group.
