Sister Duo Aly & AJ Release New Track, “Get Over Here”; Tease Forthcoming Deluxe Edition

Today (September 10), sister indie-pop duo, Aly & AJ, released a shoulder-shimmying new single, “Get Over Here,” as a preview of the upcoming release of the deluxe edition of their acclaimed 2021 record, A Touch of the Beat Gets You Up on Your Feet Gets You Out and Then Into the Sun, which is slated for 2022.

Listen to the new cut here:

“With this song, we really wanted to capture the yearning & anticipation that comes in the early stages of a relationship,” the duo tells American Songwriter exclusively. “Writing this song actually helped kickstart the process of creating our latest album. When we were thinking about a deluxe edition of ‘a touch of the beat…’, we knew this had to be on it.”

Aly & AJ, also known as Alyson and Amanda Michalka, are a Torrance, California-born group that formed in 2004. The duo released their first LP, Into the Rush, in 2005. A Touch… is the band’s 4th studio LP and their first in 14 years. A Touch… also features Nancy Wilson of Heart, who provides backing vocals and guitar on the track, “Listen!!!”

ALY & AJ began gaining attention again recently because their 2007 song, “Potential Breakup Song,” began gaining tracking on TikTok in 2020, receiving over 26 million views for the month of November, alone.

The sisters’ deluxe edition of A Touch… is set for release in early 2022 prior to their upcoming tour.
