2016 is shaping up to be a very busy year for Los Angeles quintet Grouplove.

The group’s highly anticipated third studio album Big Mess (Canvasback Music/Atlantic Records) will be released on September 9 and while that still seems like it’s far away, fans can now enjoy the first single and video off the album. Welcome to Your Life is available as a free download to anyone who pre-orders the album, starting today.

The music video for Welcome to Your Life was directed by Louri Philippe Paille and explores the magic and tragedy of life, as told through the eyes of a very young girl. The song and video is everything you’d hope for from Grouplove, it doesn’t disappoint.

Don’t miss the band on their Big Mess World tour which kicks off in Australia in August and will bring the group to Canada in October. Full tour dates can be found below.
