Believe it or not, it’s been a decade since you’ve heard “Potential Breakup Song” blasting through your radio speakers.

Singer-songwriter duo Aly and AJ basically made up our childhood (“Cow Belles”, anyone?) which is why we were like WHOA when we heard that the former Disney stars will be releasing brand new music.

“It’s been a really long time since we’ve been on here and we haven’t had new music out in nearly a decade, so we’re really excited to release new stuff,” AJ shared on their new channel trailer.

“People have been wondering what took us so long. Once we were able to embrace who we were as artists and once we started writing music again these last few years, we were able to find the direction we naturally lean towards. Music has become our friend again and we are excited about being authentic to ourselves. If this is just the start, you should stick around to see what happens!” Aly and AJ told Awesomeness exclusively.

The sisters excitedly shared the news with fans over a Facebook Live, revealing what we can expect from their new album.

“I think nostalgic is kind of the word we’re getting a lot,” AJ explained. “The music has a little bit of an ’80s-inspired, electronic pop sound that I think is fresh and new, with the chemistry Aly and I possess.”

Today the duo released a behind-the-scenes look at their Joshua Tree photoshoot, where they spoke candidly about their decision to make new music and push their creative boundaries.

“We came to each other about a year ago and said ‘It’s time to make music again’… We started so young that I think part of us felt like ‘How are we ever going to prove ourselves again?'” AJ explained.

Here’s what we know so far about their new music:

The ladies will be releasing a full album in 2018. If that seems way too far away, don’t worry. Their first single, “Take Me”, is set to drop on August 18th, and will then be followed by a 4 track EP that will be released before the full album next year. So basically there’s a ton of new Aly and AJ music coming our way very, very soon.
