THE LUMINEERS NEW ALBUM + SINGLE NAMED AFTER HISTORICAL WOMEN

The Lumineers
The Lumineers

The Lumineers announced the release of their second album Cleopatra – dropping on  April 8th. In addition, The Lumineers have announced the first leg of their World tour commencing April 14th in the UK. The band also shared their first single “Ophelia”. It took four years for The Lumineers (Wesley Schultz, Jeremiah Fraites and Neyla Pekarek) to follow up their self-titled debut album. After exploding onto the scene with their monster single, “Ho Hey”  and its follow-up, “Stubborn Love”, the band spent a solid three years touring six of the seven continents. During that time, The Lumineers earned a pair of Grammy nominations (Best New Artist, Best Americana Album), and contributed two songs to The Hunger Games franchise (including the hit Jennifer Lawrence/James Newton Howard collaboration, “The Hanging Tree”).

Cleopatra proves the band are neither taking their good fortune for granted, nor sitting back on their laurels. With the help of producer Simone Felice (The Felice Brothers, The Avett Brothers), the man Wesley calls “our shaman,” the band ensconced themselves in Clubhouse, a recording studio high atop a hill in rural Rhinebeck, N.Y., not far from Woodstock. Sticking to their folksy style way, “Ophelia” has a slower, romantic vibe.

Check out the music video for the single “Ophelia” named after Shakespeare’s Hamlet’s leading lady:
