The Lumineers will release their new album III on September 13th through Dualtone in the U.S. and Canada and Decca Records for the rest of the world.
The album is darker in tone than previous albums and is presented in three chapters, with each one centering on one main character from a fictitious family known as the Sparks, who span three generations in the album’s storyline
The band has also released Gloria, the first single from the album, which is out today. Lead vocalist Wesley Schultz says the song “is about love between an addict and her family”. The track itself is part of the first chapter of the album, and the catchy uptempo folky strum is perfectly juxtaposed with the resigned sadness of the lyrics.
