Highly doubt it, they probably just went with a safe track for the first single.
The production is really a step-up. I'm not very knowledgeable in terms of production but even though I really loved Leveler I could not stand that production.
I'm definitely not a Leveler fan, but I think we've talked about that haha. The production on this is interesting. I liked Constellations the best as far as their production values go, but I feel like going back to Jason Suecof was the wrong idea for Leveler. It sounded too... Trebley or something, I can't put my finger on it.
