NEW ALBUM MORE THAN JUST A DREAM OUT MAY 7
Neo-soul/R&B/indie collective Fitz & The Tantrums will release their sophomore studio album, More Than Just a Dream, on May 7 via Elektra Records. To get fans excited, the group just unveiled the first single, "Out of My League". Listen to the new track below. The album is the follow up to their debut record, Pickin' Up The Pieces, released in 2010.
Speaking to Rolling Stone, frontman Michael "Fitz" Fitzpatrick said: "It'd been a long while since we'd made the first record and we'd obviously grown a lot as a band and as people. We wanted to show people that this band was more than a 'retro band.' We'd all gotten a little bit tired of that one moniker that kept getting applied to us. To me, obviously, there was obviously a lot of Motown, retro-soul influence to (the first record), but there was just as much Eighties influence, indie-rock influence, new-wave and hip-hop all mixed in. That first record was that kind of hybrid, and on this record, we just wanted to push it even more forward and take even more chances, and it just required a lot of experimentation."
