We show the primes have level of distribution 66/107 using triply well-factorable weights. This gives the highest level of distribution for primes in any setting, improving on the prior record level 3/5 of Maynard. We also extend this level to 5/8, assuming Selberg's eigenvalue conjecture. As a result, we obtain new upper bounds for twin primes and for Goldbach representations of even numbers $a$. For the Goldbach problem, this is the first use of a level of distribution beyond the 'square-root barrier', and leads to the greatest improvement on the problem since Bombieri--Davenport from 1966.
