Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros just won’t slow down. A year after releasing the excellent Home, the folk-pop band is back with another album, titled simply Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, coming soon.
The group has been on the rise since the release of Up From Below in 2009; since then, the Zeros have performed at multiple festivals and joined folk superstars Mumford & Sons on their “Gentlemen of the Road” tour last year. Frontman Alex Ebert, who formed the band after the dissolution of his band Ima Robot, claimed that the songs on the new album are “the rawest, most liberated, most rambunctious stuff we’ve done.” Ebert and co. have given us a taste of what he means with the new single “Better Days,” which can be heard below.
Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros comes out on July 23rd on Community Music. For more information about the album and the band’s summer tour, visit the Edward Sharpe website.
