The Maine Announce New Single + Album

Oh hello, The Maine has revealed that they are putting out a new album titled XOXO: From Love and Anxiety in Real Time this summer. The only thing that makes this news even sweeter is that we’re going to get a new single called “Sticky” this Friday! The Maine always delivers beautiful visuals to accompany anything they do. And let’s be real, the reaction of the people in their announcement video is exactly how we’re gonna be once that single comes out.  

T-minus 4 days: The Falcon and the Winter Soldier 

Marvel has really been teasing us in the best way possible. Another sneak peek at The Falcon and the Winter Soldier just dropped and if this doesn’t get you amped for the premiere happening Friday on Disney+, not sure what will (but we’ll try when we drop our preview in a couple of days).
