The Lumineers are celebrating the 10th anniversary of their 3x RIAA platinum certified self-titled debut album with a very special deluxe vinyl edition set to arrive later this year.

The upcoming vinyl release of The Lumineers will include six additional bonus tracks and will be available in a number of colored variants, with a limited number of signed copies available via Dualtone (in the U.S. & Canada), Decca Records (for the rest of the world), and the band’s official webstore.

Released April 3, 2012, The Lumineers proved a landmark debut for The Lumineers, rising to No.2 on the Billboard 200—and No.1 on Billboard’s “Top Alternative Albums,” “Top Rock Albums,” “Top Americana/Folk Albums,” and “Independent Albums” charts—in part thanks to such now-classic singles as “Ho Hey,” “Stubborn Love,” and “Submarines.”

Among its many global achievements, the album earned 3x RIAA platinum certification in the U.S. as well as 4x platinum in Canada, and platinum in Australia, Ireland, and the United Kingdom. Moreover, both “Stubborn Love” and “Ho Hey” were awarded RIAA platinum, with the latter spending eighteen non-consecutive weeks atop Billboard’s “Rock Songs” chart, along with two weeks in the top spot on “Alternative Songs,” and eight weeks at No.1 on “Adult Pop Songs.”

What’s more, “Ho Hey” reached No.3 on the Billboard “Hot 100,” marking The Lumineers’ first time on that chart as well as the first top five hit. The single continued to triumph well into 2013, eventually landing at No.1 on Billboard’s year-end “Adult Contemporary Songs” and “Adult Pop Songs” tallies.

“The truth is,” says The Lumineers’ co-founder/co-songwriter Wesley Schultz, “this album came from two Jersey boys from the same hometown, obsessively writing music together and gigging in New York for five years before doing what everyone told us not to do – we LEFT New York to ‘make it’ by moving to Denver, Colorado. After a few years in Denver and hundreds of demos, open mics, house shows, and club gigs, something finally broke our way. This album is those seven years of toil and joy, poured into a raw collection of songs that sound so perfectly imperfect, as we all are…”
