The lead single from Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros' upcoming sophomore LP Here is titled "Man on Fire," and premiered today on KCRW. Give the radio rip a listen below. As well, the band has announced that they will be releasing a second album by the end of 2012. The band's lead singer Alex Ebert stated that “[i]n the middle of the recording process we realized we were essentially making a double album. Being four years since our last album, the writing explored a wide variety of subject and sound, as it turned out we had a lot to say. Instead of putting it out all at once, we found that two different albums seemed to be forming. Alone these albums are albums. Together these albums express a varying and so relatively living portrait of our lives.”
Here is out on May 29th via Community Music/ Vagrant.
