Fitz & the Tantrums will release More Than Just a Dream, the follow up to 2010's Pickin' Up the Pieces, on May 7. Produced by Tony Hoffer (Beck, M83, Depeche Mode, Phoenix) at The Sound Factory, Studio B in Los Angeles, the forthcoming album will be the band's debut release for Elektra Records.
The album takes its title from the chorus of the release's first single, "Out Of My League." [Listen here] The song is an exhilarating slice of pop-soul. "The way our fans embraced us and made Pickin' Up the Pieces such a success has been far beyond anything we could have imagined," says Fitz.
Fitz and The Tantrums' arrival at Elektra marks a reconnection with the label's recently-appointed president Jeff Castelaz, who signed the band to their original deal at Dangerbird, the Los Angeles-based independent record label he co-founded in 2004.
