“We’re still the same two best friends who dreamed of getting on stage together,” Tony says. “We’re both just so humbled and thankful to the people who have supported our music. It’s only that sort of support that allows us to get back out there. There’s an energy between us that we never found anywhere else. We’re so excited to be back.”
“The timing was just right,” says Malcolm. “This was the moment. We had the records ready. We wanted to deliver for the fans who had been waiting.”
After a two-year hiatus and much anticipation from their loyal fans, MKTO – who took the pop world by storm with their double-platinum worldwide smash “Classic”– are picking up right where they left off with “How Can I Forget,” a track that is sure to leave fans wanting more as the duo ushers in the next phase of their artistry. When it came time to hit the studio, they once again joined forces withlongtime collaborators Emanuel “Eman” Kiriakou [Selena Gomez, Ne-Yo] and Evan “Kidd” Bogart[Beyonce, Rihanna], who co-wrote and produced all of the previous MKTO releases. The new music is being released on Evan and Eman’s label Crooked Paintings, distributed through BMG.
