THE LUMINEERS ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM, III TO BE RELEASED SEPTEMBER 13TH

FIRST SINGLE “GLORIA” AVAILABLE TODAY

III: THE WORLD TOUR – FIRST DATES ANNOUNCED

Stream “Gloria” Here:

Watch “Gloria” Lyric Video Here:

The Lumineers will release their new album III on September 13th through Dualtone (an Entertainment One Company) in the U.S. and Canada and Decca Records for the rest of the world. The two-time GRAMMY nominated band has also released “Gloria,” the first single from the album, which is out today. Lead vocalist Wesley Schultz says the song “is about love between an addict and her family.” The new album III is audacious: every note, every syllable, and every moment of silence in between is emotionally charged. The album is darker in tone than previous albums and is presented in three chapters, with each one centering on one main character from a fictitious family known as the Sparks, who span three generations in the album’s storyline. III‘s concept began while the band was writing in the Catskill mountains, where producer Simone Felice works. Mixing raw emotional themes with their ear-catching melodies, expressive vocals and trademark acoustic sound, III moves masterly in artistic directions not yet traveled by the band. Written by the two founding members, Schultz and multi-instrumentalist Jeremiah Fraites, the album sees violinist/vocalist Lauren Jacobson officially joining the band. Her playing can be heard on the band’s previous two albums. She joins the touring lineup that includes pianist Stelth Ulvang, bassist/backing vocalist Byron Isaacs and multi-instrumentalist Brandon Miller. (After eight years, cellist/vocalist Neyla Pekarek left the group in 2018 to embark on a solo career.) The Lumineers have enjoyed substantial commercial success: their 2012 self-titled debut featured the hit single, “Ho Hey” and was certified triple-platinum in 2018, the same year their 2016 sophomore album, Cleopatra, was certified platinum and hit #1 on the Billboard Top 200. They’ve had 18 #1 hits on Triple A, Alternative and other radio charts, including “Ophelia” maintaining #1 for 13 weeks on Triple A. The Lumineers became only the second artist in history to hold the top slot on the AAA chart for that length of time. The band has sold out tours across the world, with over 300,000 tickets sold on 2017’s Cleopatra World Tour and ended with 27 sold out arena shows. The Lumineers have also supported icons and their musical heroes on the road, including Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers on his final tour and U2 on its Joshua Tree tour. This year, the band plans to tour across the U.S. and Europe, including their biggest ever UK shows at The O2 Arena London, Manchester Arena, The SSE Hydro Glasgow, and dates across Europe including 3Arena Dublin, Le Zénith Paris and Verti Music Hall Berlin, following a string of festival dates that include Hangout, Bonnaroo, Outside Lands, Woodstock and more. Regarding the new album, Fraites says, “This collection of songs worked out in a beautiful way, and I feel with this album we’ve really hit our stride.”

Emerging singer/songwriter Billy Raffoul releases an acoustic performance of his new single “Lovely” today.  “Lovely” was written by Raffoul and produced by Greg Kurstin and Raffoul and was released last month on Interscope Records.   “Lovely” will appear on Raffoul’s forthcoming debut album which will be released later this year.

Growing up in the small farming town of Leamington, Ontario, Raffoul first started writing songs at age 10, thanks in no small part to the influence of his father—a musician who’s opened for everyone from Joe Cocker to Bon Jovi. After landing his first paying gig—playing to long-haul drivers at a local truck stop—Raffoul began playing at nearby bars and clubs at age 16, often driving into Detroit for shows. He eventually connected with a manager and moved down to Nashville to push forward with his music career. Soon after scoring a deal with Interscope Records, Raffoul released the critically hailed song “Driver” and followed that with his debut EP 1975 in June 2018.  Critical praise followed with NPR raving, “Billy Raffoul has stepped into the spotlight.” Over the past few years, Raffoul has opened for heavyweight artists like, Kings of Leon, X Ambassadors, NEEDTOBREATHE and Kaleo, captivating crowds with his understated yet intensely passionate stage presence.

Barns Courtney

BARNS COURTNEY’S NEW SINGLE IS OUT TODAY.

North American Tour with The Wombats kicks off September 27 at Los Angeles Belasco Theater and includes October 30 at Terminal 5 in NYC.

Barns Courtney has a quarter of a Billion Cumulative Streams Worldwide.

Today, Barns Courtney returns with his first new music since the 2017 release of his debut album, The Attractions Of Youth, which racked up more than 240 million global streams and found him performing on such shows as CONAN and The Late Late Show with James Corden as well as for audiences around the world in what Rolling Stone hailed as a stomping, swaggering rock & roll balancing act teetering between blinding light and total darkness.

99” his new single, evokes the giddy bliss of coming of age at the turn of the century and the comedown that grown-up life can be. The two-track single includes another new song, “Good Thing,” as the B-side. Both tracks are from Barns Courtney’s forthcoming album, details of which will be revealed soon. Download/stream “99” and “Good ThingHERE.

Barns Courtney says, “This is the first song where I’ve ever been able to inject my true personality. I grew up in a suburban Seattle playing video games and watching Pokémon. “99” has got genuine sadness, but it’s got playfulness, and it references the nerdy parts of my personality where I’m in Seattle in the late 90’s with my friends in front of the TV screen playing Nintendo 64. It’s got that silly playfulness where I reel off list of dated games consoles at the end. That sense of poking fun at yourself. The universal goal is that to be successful is to have shiny status symbols, so there are people who’ve grown up and got the house and the Ferrari, but here I am clutching my old Sega Megadrive.
