It's the latest single from their incoming new album 'M A N I A'
The track is a stomping, theatrical pop number, taking Fall Out Boyâs cinematic scope forward another few strides. Meanwhile, its accompanying video is a haunting, thriller-esque continuation of their llama-packed video for previous single âYoung and Menaceâ,Â with bassist Pete Wentz also playing a starring role. Jaden Smith is also credited as a Llama Wrangling Specialist in the clipâs tongue-in-cheek end credits.
Smith previously starred in Fall Out Boyâs celebrity-stuffed video for âChampionâ, their anthemic latest single from âM AÂ NÂ Â IÂ Â Aâ. Back in May, Wentz stated that âJaden Smith could be the next Nirvana.â
Check out the video for âThe Last Of The Real Onesâ below.
Fall Out Boy recently delayed the release of âM AÂ NÂ Â IÂ Â Aâ by four months, with frontman Patrick Stump explaining that the album âwasnât readyâ and âfelt very rushedâ.
He continued to say that he admired the wayÂ Kanye WestÂ had continued to work on âThe Life Of PabloâÂ after it had been released. âThis isnât that though,â Stump explained. âThe album just really isnât ready and it felt very rushed. Iâm never going to put out a record I genuinely donât believe is at least as strong or valid as the one that came before it and in order to do that we need a little bit more time to properly and carefully record solid performances.â
Speaking toÂ NMEÂ earlier this year,Â Pete WentzÂ described the spirit and mood of the record as âmaniaâ.Â âI was watching this show,Â Legion,â he said. âPeople are always asking us to respond on whatâs going on in the world and in America, and weâve never been one of those bands that shoved our views down peopleâs throats, but I think everyone kinda knows our political views.
âI think the personal and the political are so intensely tied now. I think that like it starts out like a euphoric feeling and then it kinda tidal waves into people not sleeping, manic behaviour, and violence. And I think thatâs where we are, you know.â
At the time of the interview, Wentz said the album was âhalfway doneâ and described single âYoung And Menaceâ asÂ âthe furthest left, like you know â the wildest part of the album.â âThe song will make sense on the album and the album is like â weâve updated the software since the last album, so I think the album will sound different to people,â he said.
