The Lumineers Announce Forthcoming Album, ‘BRIGHTSIDE,’ Release Titular Track [Watch/Listen]

The Lumineers have announced the release of their forthcoming album, BRIGHTSIDE, due out January 14th, 2022. In anticipation of the new album, the Denver-based, Grammy-nominated Americana roots band has also shared the album’s titular track.

Recorded in Boiceville, New York’s Baron’s Sun Mountain Studios and produced by longtime collaborators Simone Felice and David Baron, BRIGHTSIDE comes in an energetic, nine-song collection. The new album marks the folk group’s first full-length studio release following 2019’s III and fourth studio album as a band.

“The song ‘BRIGHTSIDE’ was recorded in a single day,” says singer-guitarist Wesley Schultz in a press release. “It’s like a 15-year-old’s fever dream, an American love story in all its glory and heartbreak. The last couple left, on the run from something and all alone…”

 

The band went on to premiere the new track earlier this week on Jimmy Kimmel Live! You can watch the band’s performance below.

Having been off the road from touring for more than a year due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, The Lumineers played their first show in 552 days to their homestate fans at Boulder, CO’s Boulder Theater last week. The band is currently slated for a European tour in February and March 2022 and have not announced any U.S. tour dates yet.
