Two-time GRAMMY and JUNO–nominated band The Lumineers are back with their third album, III, a cinematic piece presented as a narrative in three chapters, with each one centering on one main character. III’s concept began while the band was writing in the Catskill mountains, where producer Simone Felice works. Decidedly darker than their previous work in concept, but replete with their trademark expressive vocals and dynamic arrangements, III boldly and expertly goes in an artistic direction not yet traveled by the band.
The Lumineers have enjoyed substantial commercial success: their 2012 self-titled debut album featured the hit single, “Ho Hey” and was certified triple-platinum in the US in 2018, and quadruple-platinum in Canada. The same year their 2016 sophomore album, Cleopatra, was certified platinum (U.S.) and double-platinum in Canada, hitting #1 simultaneously on the U.S. Billboard Top 200, Top 200 Soundscan Chart (Canada) and the Official Albums Chart Top 100 (UK). The band has had multiple #1’s at CHR and Alternative radio in Canada, and 18 #1 hits on Triple A, Alternative and other radio charts.
