The new song and album of ‘Sleeping with Sirens’
Sleeping with Sirens, the American popular rock band from Orlando, Florida will soon be releasing their new album titled ‘Gossip’. The D-Day for their album is 22nd September 2017. The band’s previous release was in 2015 and it was named as ‘Madness’. ‘Gossip’ would be the fifth album of this group. The single song of this album has been released and called as ‘Legends’.
The song is dubbed as a dark song both in terms of sound and lyrics. It depicts losing and then finding hope again. Talking about it, Vocalist Kellin Quinn said:
“I think [it’s about] being lost and then finding hope. It’s a dark record. It sounds dark, but there’s a hopefulness in everything. That’s always something I’ve tried to do as a vocalist. When I write about a sad topic, I always want there to be a light at the end of the tunnel.”
The band had performed to their new song ‘Legends’ at the 2017 APMAs.
Kellin Quinn was also seen sporting a pair of shoes which have been inspired by this new album ‘Gossip’.
Theme song for Team USA
‘Sleeping with Sirens’ has another reason for pride! Their new song would figure as the official song for the 2018 US Winter Olympic team! Athletes at Team USA are also thrilled and they are gearing up to give their best at the Winter Olympics which are scheduled to take place at Pyeongchang, South Korea.

Corresponding with Billboard, the band member Kellin Quinn said:
“It’s such a huge honor to be a part of something as major as the Olympics, it honestly doesn’t feel real. I think the song we’ve written has taken on a life of its own,” Quinn emailed, adding, “A kid from a small town [Medford, Oregon] has managed to write a song that represents the American Olympic team, dreams can come true, and we can become legends.”
The ‘Legends’ co-writer David Bendeth said:
“Being a Brit and a Canadian, I never dreamed I would ever live in the USA and make music, let alone co-write an Olympic theme song,”
The native Stevie Aiello also seemed excited and wrote in his email to Billboard:
“Around 100 years ago my great grandfather left southern Italy at a young age in search for a better life in America. This country afforded him the opportunity to work hard, raise a family, and eventually become a proud American citizen. When I learned that ‘Legends’ is being used to represent Team USA for the 2018 Olympics, I couldn’t help but think about my great-grandfather and how proud I’d hope he’d be if he were alive today. Like many immigrants of the past and present, his sacrifices aren’t taken for granted. ‘Legends’ is a story about the American Dream and what is possible. “
The story behind the song
Bendeth talked about how they went about the song. He said:
“We wanted to write a two-fold song, one that would obviously inspire people to think that ultimately in their life that they could become something great — maybe legends is far-fetched but certainly something great. At the same time, we wanted to have an arena for the song. At the beginning, we were talking about WWE wrestling and any kind of big mainstream sports. That was the plan. The next thing that happened was Benji and Joel Madden from Good Charlotte who manage Sleeping With Sirens said they saw a bigger immediate picture for the song. We realized that the Winter Olympics were coming up in South Korea so we thought, ‘Let’s pitch it to them.”
The song’s motivational lyrics go as follows:
“We can be wild/We can be free/We can be anything in life/We want to be,” begins the anthemic lyric. “We can move mountains/We can break walls/We can stand tall enough to fight/And never fall/ We can be legends after all.”
After the song was ready, Benji made the Head of the Olympic Committee listen to it. They all liked it very much and approved it for the official theme song for the team. The song most likely would be played and used on all the social media. But things on this front are still ongoing and the picture will take a while to clear!
