Foster The People – ‘Supermodel’ out March 24th

Foster The PeopleFoster The People are set to release their highly anticipated new album ‘Supermodel on 24th March via Columbia Records with the first single “Coming Of Age” released shortly before on 16th March. Produced by Paul Epworth, the globally influenced ‘Supermodel’ is the follow-up to the group’s critically acclaimed 2011 debut ‘Torches’. Recorded in various locations around the world, ‘Supermodel’ began as frontman Mark Foster and producer Paul Epworth set up a writing studio in a riad in Essaouira, Morocco at the end of 2012. “We didn’t have any rules. We just created as much as we could in seven days,” Foster recalls,  “And in the spirit of wanderlust and discovery  we ended up  stumbling  on  the musical identity of  what this record was going to feel like.” From Morocco the album continued to migrate with Foster and the band. Work continued at Woodshed Studios in Malibu, Henson Studios and Bronson Island in Los Angeles and was finished at Epworth’s Wolf Tone Studios in London. Fans can also listen to the album’s first single “Coming Of Age” now on the band’s website fosterthepeople.com where the song is set to a visual documenting the creation of a mural inspired by the new album. The mural lives on a building in downtown Los Angeles and, at seven stories tall, is one of the largest painted murals in the United States. The band is also confirmed to perform at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, CA on the 12th and 19th of April. Foster the People is Foster, Cubbie Fink and Mark Pontius. Founded by Foster in 2009, the group achieved success with the 2011 release of their debut album ‘Torches’, which has sold nearly 2 million albums and over 9 million singles worldwide. ‘Torches’ features the hit singles “Pumped Up Kicks,” “Don’t Stop (Colour On The Walls),” “Houdini” and “Helena Beat.” Foster the People garnered three GRAMMY nominations for their monumental debut – including Best Alternative Album, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for “Pumped Up Kicks” and Best Short Form Music Video for “Houdini” – as well as a Brit Award for International Breakthrough in 2012, two Q Awards and two NME Awards. Now, in support of their upcoming release they have announced a North American tour and a European leg is expected to follow. We’ll keep you updated on The Fix. SUPERMODEL TRACK LISTING: 1.
