The BRIGHTSIDE World Tour celebrates the recent arrival of the Lumineers’ eagerly anticipated new album, BRIGHTSIDE, available now via Dualtone in the U.S. & Canada and Decca Records for the rest of the world. The 2x GRAMMY® Award-nominated band’s fourth studio album, BRIGHTSIDE includes suchnew favorites as “A.M. RADIO,” “BIG SHOT,” “WHERE WE ARE,”and the chart-topping first single and title track, “BRIGHTSIDE,” all joined by official music videos streaming now at YouTube. “BRIGHTSIDE” recently made history by ascending to #1 on Billboard’s “Alternative National Airplay” and “Adult Alternative Airplay” charts – the band’s sixth time atop the latter ranking in less than 10 years. The Lumineers now boast the most #1 singles among all acts on that chart in the span since achieving their first AAA chart-topper in 2012.
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. 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.
The Lumineers’ most joyous and spontaneous piece of work thus far, BRIGHTSIDE has been met by immediate critical applause around the world:
“Every track has at least one super grabby hook…It demanded my attention. Beautiful and effecting wistfulness.”
“The easy melodic hooks that drew fans to The Lumineers in the first place remain, but the combination of stronger material and looser performances make for a strong fourth outing.”
– ALLMUSIC (4/5)
“Schultz and Fraites are masters of storytelling… What separates BRIGHTSIDE from albums past is a raw quality, like sitting in on a jam session. Strings are sparse, instead relying on piano, percussion and guitar to carry the record. Songs like the stripped down ‘A.M. RADIO’ with its acoustic guitar lead in have a simplicity that allow the craftsmanship to shine.”
– ASSOCIATED PRESS
“Its upbeat feel and finely wrought prettiness will satisfy Luministas for sure."
– ROLLING STONE
“It’s a compact production – nine songs, 30 minutes, much storytelling – stocked with the rootsy pop flavors first experienced on their 2012 breakout single, ‘Ho Hey,’ as well as follow-up hits ‘Stubborn Love’ and ‘Ophelia.’”
– USA TODAY
“As spring rolls round eventually and the days slowly get brighter, I can see myself reaching for this record: The Lumineers seem to have a way of always being calming yet never borrowing, with vocals unique enough to keep intrigue and instrumentals just lively enough to regularly respark your attention.”
“A sweet slice of Americana that will get right under your skin…Rootsy, heartfelt yet understated, The Lumineers hold lyrical intelligence, emotional introspection, analogue instrumentation and old-fashioned flaws-and-all musicianship to be of higher value than trendy production or sonic effects.”
– THE TELEGRAPH (4/5)
