Denver’s Lumineers will have a new record out on April 8tyh called Cleopatra. The band shared the first single today called “Ophelia.” You might remember The Lumineers’ from their 212 Much Mega Hit “Ho Hey.”
“We took the same approach this time as we did with the first album, recording demos in a small house we rented in the original Denver neighborhood where we first moved,” explains Wesley Schultz. “The record is our greatest hits reflecting what’s happened to us over the last three years,” added Wesley. “We tried to come up with the best possible version of every song, so we recorded a lot of different iterations, changing the tempos, dressing ‘em up, stripping ‘em down. It took a lot of work to make them sound so easy. We’re very passionate about the process. It was a very intense and beautiful experience. There was a lot of battling, a lot of tears, but some amazing stuff came out, and at the end, we were much better off. It transformed our relationship.”
