The 10-track album opens with the mid-tempo “The Reaper,” where they collaborate with Amy Shark, and it is followed by their gorgeous track “Family” with electronic star Kygo, as well as “See the Way,” which features the rich, crystalline voice of Sabrina Claudio.

One of the highlight tracks on the collection is “P.S. I Hope You’re Happy,” where they join forces with Blink-182. They slow down the tempo with “Push My Luck,” which ought to be enjoyed for its soaring melodies.

Bebe Rexha lends her breathy voice on their smash single “Call You Mine,” which has a killer drop to it. After “Do You Mean,” the album closes with the sultry “Kills You Slowly” and “Who Do You Love,” their collaboration with 5 Seconds of Summer, where they leave their fans yearning for more.

World War Joy is available on Apple Music and on Spotify.
