THE LUMINEERS RETURN WITH 3-CHAPTER ALBUM: III, NEW SINGE & ANNOUNCE ‘III: THE WORLD TOUR’

After the triumph of their UK and US No.1 record, The Lumineers are back with their third studio album, ‘III’, out on Decca Records on 13thSeptember. The two-time GRAMMY nominated band also release ‘Gloria’, the first single from the album, out today, with the first UK performance on BBC One’s Graham Norton Show tonight.

LISTEN TO ‘GLORIA’ HERE

A conceptual album presented across three chapters, ‘III’ is audacious: every note, every syllable, and every moment of silence in between is emotionally charged. The album is darker in tone anything they’ve done before, with each part centering on one main character from a fictitious family known as The Sparks, who span three generations in the album’s storyline. Mixing raw emotional themes with their ear-catching melodies, expressive vocals and trademark acoustic sound, ‘III’ moves masterly in artistic directions not yet travelled by the band.

Written by the two founding members, Wesley Schultz and multi-instrumentalist Jeremiah Fraites, the album sees violinist/vocalist Lauren Jacobson officially joining the band, after playing on their previous two albums. Lauren completes the touring lineup that includes pianist Stelth Ulvang, bassist/backing vocalist Byron Isaacs and multi-instrumentalist Brandon Miller.

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.”

Tonight, The Lumineers will be guests on BBC One’s Graham Norton Show performing their brand new single ‘Gloria’
