A short film features the songs from the new album; you can clear her the Cousins involved songs ;)

I absolutely adore Ali Payami.

don't think any of the songs in Mania is by Max or Ali though   ;D

Sidewalks sounds sick.

The song I thought it was a Cousins' track is Secrets.
Produced by Don McKinney, Cirkut and Sir Dylan.

The album overall is great, specially Secrets. Max and Ali's songs are most of them great, except Ordinary Life, which is quite a disappointment, such a good set of writers with Cirkut but kinda weak.

Seeing Cirkut all over this album raises question marks for me.

Since Cirkut and Dr. Luke work together so frequently, I think it is very likely that Luke worked on the album to. But to avoid any negative publicity they agreed not to feature his name in the credits directly.
Instead to 'hide' him under Cirkut for now, since the whole Ke$ha thing is a little to fresh.
I think 'Secrets' really has that Dr. Luke feel to it for example.

Oh and before you comment ''Thats stupid bla bla bla,, they would never do that bla bla''  Just remember I also correctly predicted Taylor Swift's contribution to Calvin Harris' - This Is What You Came For, long before it was anounced and nobody in here believed me then either.  ;D

Anyway just a theory...

That D major chord that hits just before the chorus on "Secrets" is so dope!!!

You know? I don't think Luke is hiding.
I think he's doing business with Prescription.

Yes he's on Greenlight but he ain't keeping it a secret. btw Pitbull raps: I got all the women getting naked, feeling like Luke in this thing
Which is kinda crazy. Not too respectful.

It's a Tears For Fear sample from 1982, sir.

1) The chord progression leading up to that chord is totally different.
2) It's not even remotely a "sample". I don't care how many blogs wrote that: the production on the part I'm talking about is completely different. Was it inspired by them?  Sure-- but it's not used in the same spot of "Secrets" chord progression.

Well baby, I went down and got it for ya: the members of Tears For Fears are in the credits, as well as the members of The Romantics, for their song "Talking in Your Sleep".
Secrets interpolates the lyrics in the chorus.

So...

I would like to add: some time ago, there was a remix contest with the official stems of Pale Shelter by Tears For Fears.
It makes sense if they got the sounds from there.
