Several months ago, Pentatonix said they were working on an album of all original music.  Now we know when it’ll be released.

The a capella group will release The Lucky Ones on February 12.  It’s their first full-length original album since their self-titled 2015 release, which debuted at number one and went gold.

Ahead of that, the group has released a brand-new original single called “Be My Eyes,” along with a music video. Unlike the videos that they’ve released which were filmed at home during quarantine, this is full-on production clip with a spotlight on Kirstin Maldonado, who co-wrote the track.

The Lucky Ones will also feature the group’s previously released song, “Happy Now,” already available for pre-order.

As previously reported, Pentatonix will team with Kelly Clarkson and percussionist Sheila E. to perform Whitney Houston’s version of “Higher Love” on the opening of tonight’s Billboard Music Awards.
