The 2x GRAMMY Award-nominated band’s fourth studio album, Brightside is celebrated by today’s premiere of the vibrant first single and title track, “Brightside,” available now at all DSPs and streaming services; additionally, an official visualizer is streaming now at YouTube. The Lumineers will further celebrate today’s announcement with the debut live performance of “Brightside” on tonight’s installment of ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!.

“The song ‘Brightside’ was recorded in a single day,” says The Lumineers singer-guitarist and co-founder Wesley Schultz. “It’s like a 15-year-old’s fever dream, an American love story in all its glory and heartbreak. The last couple left, on the run from something and all alone…”

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 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 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, The Lumineers released a new live EP, Live From The Last Night Of Tour, which is now available digitally through Decca Records.
