The Skinny: Modern rock favorite Thousand Foot Krutch launches its debut radio single, “Born This Way,” from the band’s first new studio album in over two years, Oxygen. Premiering on YouTube, the single goes for radio adds July 22 as the album is set to release independently worldwide August 26 on TFK Music and with marketing, sales and distribution through Fuel Music.

Following five Active Rock hits from its No. 1 selling Billboard Hard Rock album, The End Is Where We Begin (2012), TFK frontman Trevor McNevan says the new single is about being comfortable in your own skin. “We were made to be who we are, and every one of us is unique,” says McNevan. “We’re wired the way we are for a reason. We were all created equal, and this song is an anthem for everyone who’s tired of being someone they’re not, or has to dumb down who they are for someone else. Be yourself, you’re the best version of you.”
