The new record is called Living On A High Note and it's out on Anti Records now. Everyone in the band plays and sings all over it. M. Ward produced and it was recorded here in LA at Kingsize Recorders. It's a fun, joyous record featuring songs by different young songwriters. Check out what Rolling Stone had to say...
