Free Energy perfect their power-pop formula in their new single, "Hangin.'" Featured on Love Sign, their follow-up album to the James Murphy-produced Stuck on Nothing, "Hangin" concerns love, youth and power chords.

The track focuses on hanging onto delusion in a relationship – as the band sings, deciding to "make believe tonight we're still okay." Despite the depressing theme, though, the Philadelphia rockers keep to their feel-good rock style, focusing on fantasies and hope for the wavering love. The song is filled with images of youth and love, referring to "making out with the beat turned on," with a guitar solo added for good measure.

Love Sign is set for release on January 15th on the band's own Free Energy Records. Full tracklist below.
