I'm so excited as well! Even Rami in his Instagram acknowledged that he and Max haven't written a song together in 15 years, that means forever until tomorrow by MKTO max didn't co-wrote it with Rami, at least not in the same session.

Yeah, I'm not too sure about that because, like you mentioned, there's "Forever Until Tomorrow" + there's also that unleaked Demi Lovato song "Single" they wrote together + if I recall correctly, didn't Ariana mention in an interview Max actually worked on "One Last Time" with Rami and Carl, but didn't end up taking credit for it for some reason? It's not like it matters or anything, haha, it's just fun pointing out the little technicalities.

Yeah, credits-wise Max also did the vocal arrangements on DNCE's truthfully, but I believe Rami refers to write together on the same place/session

Hmm. It kinda reminds me of "One More Night". Was expecting a bit more, but there are some great melodies and I love the added post-chorus at the very end. It reminds me a lot of early 2010s Max.

It's grown on me a lot as I've been listening! I love the "get lost in your halo, HA-LO" bit, so catchy. The vocal production is a bit weak in the verses, though, in my opinion. Joe's vocals in particular sound so artificial and Melodyned in the first verse, makes him sound kinda lifeless.

Top tier track, it also gives me 2010s vibes with the production and even the melody. It’s nice to hear it nowadays. LOVE the chorus sort of “creeping” melody.

It's grown on me a lot as I've been listening! I love the "get lost in your halo, HA-LO" bit, so catchy. The vocal production is a bit weak in the verses, though, in my opinion. Joe's vocals in particular sound so artificial and Melodyned in the first verse, makes him sound kinda lifeless.

This was also my instant critique. Overall, the vocal production/editing was lacking. The weird Melodyned high notes sounding mechanic. If the vocals were more finely tuned, the song would be that much better.

Could this be a DNCE song?

I thought this upon first listen, for sure. It could easily fit with that band's sound.
