Mitch Grassi from the a-capella vocal group Pentatonix chatted about their newest EP, "PTX, Vol. III," which will be out on September 23.
On the song selection for the project, he shared, "We knew we wanted to have both original content and covers, but we wanted everything to be more progressive. I feel like the covers we chose to do aren't typical pop tunes and I think listeners will find that captivating. Our original songs are also beginning to feel a lot more cohesive, which is pretty exciting to me."
He selected "La La Latch" as his favorite track from the EP. "I'm really proud of the arrangement and it's a really lovely marriage of two huge, beloved songs," he said.
While the EP does not necessarily a theme, he noted that the song selection is "varied but not too erratic," which keeps it interesting. "I think we'll have more thematic elements on our full-length album," he said.
This year, Pentatonix made Digital Journal's Top 10 "pop music acts to watch" list, and Grassi admitted that he was quite flattered. "We're really honored! It feels good to be associated with other big acts, as well. We love being viewed as an actual band and not just a novelty a-cappella group," he said.
When asked about their proudest moments, he responded, "I'm still reeling about making the Top 10 on the Billboard charts with PTX Vol. II. That's unbelievable to me that an all-vocal group managed to do that," he exclaimed.
Grassi revealed that he definitely wants to come back to New York. "It's one of my favorite places to perform. In regards to the future, we're planning a lot more tour dates and a lot more content," he said.
He listed "Imogen Heap" as his dream female collaboration. "I think our voices would mesh well together, mainly because she's been one of my primary vocal influences for most of my life. Plus, she's an incredible songwriter and producer. I really look up to her a lot," he said.
For the fans, he concluded, "I can't tell you how happy I am that you're with us on this journey, and thank you for being so supportive! We love you."
This Thursday, Pentatonix will be performing live on Good Morning America.
