It might not have a name just yet, but it's become clear a sophomore album from Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros will be dropping in a few months. The band has been holed up in two California studios these past few months to record the follow-up to their huge 2009 debut, Up From Below. Details on the new album remain slim, but we do know that it drops May 29 via Community Music/Vagrant. Also, frontman Alex Ebert had the following to say on the creation of the record:
"The making of this album has spanned a time of immense perseverance and, thankfully, co-creation," said frontman Alex Ebert. "Making this album has been a test of our faith in ourselves and in the universe, and brought us closer together and in greater harmony with one another... A deluge of music has been written and recorded, and we are intensely excited to share it with anyone who wants to feel it."
Sounds good to us. View the band's upcoming tour dates below.
