COIN Drops New Song & Video “Let It All Out” Off Forthcoming Album ‘Dreamland’

Lead singer Chase Lawrence said on the making of the track, “From Nashville to Seoul to London to Los Angeles, we recorded everywhere but a studio. For the past two years, we made this album in green rooms, bedrooms, airplanes, & buses. ‘Dreamland’ is a patchwork quilt of everywhere we’ve been — a sonic journal of orchestras, out of tune guitars, church choirs, & iPhone voice memos. ‘Let It All Out (10:05)’ began on a stage in Manila, overwhelmed by anxiousness & uncertainty. My mind was racing, but my feet wouldn’t move an inch. 1 take of vocals & 2 hours later, this song fell in our lap.”

Reflecting on the song, Pruitt shares, “This song is about being swept up in the initial high of infatuation, when you can’t imagine wanting to leave each other’s side.
