The Lumineers’ New Album ‘III’ Coming In September

Dualtone’s The Lumineers will release their upcoming album, III, on Sept. 13. The album will release via Dualtone in the U.S., and via Decca Records for the rest of the world.

The album’s concept began while the band was writing in the Catskill Mountains, where producer Simone Felice works. The album 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. The band has released “Gloria,” the first single from the upcoming album.

Written by the two founding members, Wesley 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’ 2012 debut album included the hit “Ho Hey” and was certified triple Platinum by the RIAA in 2018. Their 2016 album Cleopatra has been certified Platinum and debuted at No. 1 on the Top 200 in 2016. The band has notched 18 No. 1 hits on Triple A, Alternative and other radio charts, including the Triple A 13-week No. 1 hit “Ophelia.”

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.
