Indie folk group Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros are back with their self-titled third record and are letting listeners stream it live a week before its release. The twelve songs span a number of styles but, for the most part, stay true to their style. Give it a listen over at NPR.
In a recent interview with Billboard, frontman Alex Ebert said:
“(The album) has a lot of songs that are represented by a musically adventuresome sort of feel, where the songs dive off to the left and then come back around the other side of the lobe and meet back up with themselves. That’s fun. We’ve been playing some of these songs live lately, and it’s a blast to have this roller coaster ride within the songs.”
Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros’ new album will hit stores July 23 via Vagrant Records/Rough Trade Records. Pre-order the album here, then head to the comment section below to let us know how you think it sounds in comparison with their other work.
