Clancy (2024) Lyrics – Twenty One Pilots

English 487 May 24, 2024

"Clancy" is the seventh studio album by American musical duo Twenty One Pilots, release on May 24, 2024, through Fueled by Ramen. Named after the protagonist from their fifth album "Trench" (2018), this visual album will conclude the band's nearly decade-long conceptual series. Continuing the narrative set in the metaphorical world of "Trench" and the dystopian city of "Dema," "Clancy" chronicles the titular character's journey back to Trench following his escape from Dema, now empowered by a "miraculous power" obtained in their sixth album, "Scaled and Icy" (2021).

Frontman Tyler Joseph wrote the album, with production handled alongside frequent collaborator Paul Meany. Speculation about the album culminated in its announcement on February 29, 2024. Leading up to the release, four singles were dropped: "Overcompensate" on the announcement day, "Next Semester" on March 27, "Backslide" on April 25, and "The Craving" on May 22. The fourth single's release included a "Single Version" differing in instrumentation from the on-album "Jenna's Version."

A narrated video, released on the band's social media on February 22, featured Clancy summarizing the story of the past three albums and his escape attempts from Dema, concluding with his return to Trench. This narrative setup paved the way for the album's announcement and the release of "Overcompensate" as the lead single.

On March 18, Joseph revealed that every track on the album would have an accompanying music video, all slated for release with the album. The release date was later pushed back by a week to complete the production of these videos. Despite the delay, the band organized listening parties in select stores worldwide from May 18 to May 23. On May 9, they performed "The Craving (Jenna's Version)" live at a small-scale concert at the Electric Ballroom in London, further building anticipation for the album's release. Below you can find a to z all track details, with lyrics and videos.
