The Lumineers have announced the release of their second single “Big Shot,” featured on their eagerly awaited new album, BRIGHTSIDE. The track is joined by a poignant official music video, based around a heist at a grocery story, which you can check out below.
“We are all big shots in our own story,” says The Lumineers singer-guitarist and co-founder Wesley Schultz, “and, now, we’ve all been humbled over the last 18 months. The “Big Shot” video was inspired by the 90s, and the storytelling music videos we grew up watching on MTV.”
The Grammy Award-nominated band’s fourth studio album, BRIGHTSIDE also includes the first single and title track. The Lumineers celebrated the single’s release with a live performance of “BRIGHTSIDE” on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!
BRIGHTSIDE arrives on Friday, January 14, 2022 via Dualtone in the U.S. & Canada and Decca Records for the rest of the world.
Produced by longtime collaborator Simone Felice and produced, mixed, and engineered by David Baron over two sessions in winter and spring 2021 at Baron’s Sun Mountain Studios in bucolic Boiceville, NY, BRIGHTSIDE marks The Lumineers’ first new music in more than two years as well as the band’s most joyous and spontaneous piece of work thus far.
The nine-song collection sees The Lumineers’ co-founders/co-songwriters Wesley Schultz and Jeremiah Fraites performing virtually all of the eclectic, effervescent instrumentation, with Baron on a wide variety of keyboards and backing vocals and more by Simone Felice, touring members Byron Isaacs and Lauren Jacobson, famed backing singer Cindy Mizelle (Bruce Springsteen, Dave Matthews Band), The Felice Brothers’ James Felice, and acclaimed singer-songwriter Diana DeMuth.
Back in May this year, The Lumineers released a new live EP, Live From The Last Night Of Tour, which is now available digitally through Decca Records.
BRIGHTSIDE includes the following tracks:
“Where We Are”
“Never Really Mine”
