Twenty One Pilots have announced the release of their 2022 MTV Unplugged performance.

The set will be released on vinyl, CD and via digital formats on April 21. It includes stripped-down renditions of songs including “Stressed Out,” “Car Radio” and “Heathens.”

“Preparing for MTV Unplugged will always live as a special moment for us as friends and collaborators,” frontman Tyler Joseph said of the special upon its premiere last June. “[Drummer] Josh [Dun] and I challenged each other, learned new things about music production, we practiced his singing together, called each other about nightmares of messing up.”

“After memorizing 175+ musical cues, we eventually had to get on stage and press ‘start’ on the loop,” Joseph continued. “I’m being a little dramatic, but I’m proud of him. And I am proud of the result. But I think it’s the time spent preparing together that will mean the most.”
