Sam Means (ex-The Format) has released a new song called "We're Alone." It comes from his upcoming album 10 Songs, which releases January 16th, 2016. No word yet on how many songs will be on the album.
This song may not necessarily be the obvious first choice to kick off the new album, but Iíve never been a fan of playing it safe, I suppose. Disregarding all potentially less interesting back story within the lyrics; the core of it is really just about that overwhelming sense of insignificance that consumes you the first time youíre struck with a basic understanding of how truly infinite the universe is. Doubled, when you find out how little we know about it.

Nate Ruess has posted an update on Facebook talking about his new album, and new song, a little more. Full thing is in the replies.
This is probably my favorite song I've ever written. The one I've listened to the most on repeat. And I can't pinpoint what it is about it that makes its so special to me. Which makes me love it even more.
