Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros have announced that they are currently in the studio recording the follow-up to their debut album, Up From Below. After an early session in Bogalusa, LA, the band has been recording at their studio in Ojai, CA. The album, which is self-produced, will be released on May 29th.
“The making of this album has spanned a time of immense perseverance and, thankfully, co-creation,” said frontman Alex Ebert. “Making this album has been a test of our faith in ourselves and in the universe, and brought us closer together and in greater harmony with one another… A deluge of music has been written and recorded, and we are intensely excited to share it with anyone who wants to feel it.”
