Fun. has announced the upcoming release of their eagerly awaited album: Some Nights arrives in stores and at all digital retailers on Feb. 21.
fun. decided to raise the stakes with this album, their first on Fueled By Ramen, by teaming with noted producer Jeff Bhasker (Kanye West, Jay-Z, Alicia Keys, Beyoncé, Drake). A behind-the-scenes look at the making of Some Nights is streaming now and you can watch it here.
The first single is "We Are Young (Feat. Janelle Monáe)" and it is available now via all digital retailers. The band will launch a preorder for a limited edition 7" vinyl version of the single on Nov. 28 through the Fueled By Ramen webstore, which you can visit here, which will also unveil the song "One Foot" from Some Nights as the b-side.
A companion video clip for "We Are Young" is currently in pre-production. A video of fun. performing an acoustic version of the song with Janelle Monáe is up on the band's site, which you can view here.
Monae spoke about the band, saying, "Nate Ruess' voice is legendary," Monáe added. "Their music is special. To watch fun. is to perhaps watch the renaissance of Queen mixed with their own fresh approach to music." That's quite an endorsement.
