Alone Together will be released on September 9 via Dualtone and marks Leagues‘ first album for the label. The band Nashville, TN based duo is lead vocalist and songwriter Thad Cockrell and producer/programmer/drummer Jeremy Lutito. Earlier this Spring they revealed “Dance With Me“which has already garnered well over 215K streams on Spotify.
The eleven tracks on Alone Together highlight Leagues’ passion for creating their own particular brand of dance pop that aims to appeal to the masses. The band first set about making what is now Alone Together not long after their debut, You Belong Here, was out in the world. They completed the album in late 2014 but with a sinking feeling that it wasn’t the right one. “It’s hard to see when you’re in the middle of that process,” says Cockrell, “but I think we both had this growing feeling that we weren’t saying everything we wanted to say and weren’t pushing each musically to do all we could do. So we had to wipe the slate clean and start over.” Wholly produced by Lutito, and comprising both wholly reworked songs from the first pass as well all new ones, Alone Together captures a creative duo egging each other on the ever-greater heights. The songs themselves are among Cockrell’s best, and made all the more dynamic by programming envelope constantly being pushed by Lutito’s production.
Leagues will be touring the US in support of Alone Together with dates to be announced soon.
