The Lumineers have returned with the announcement of their highly anticipated new album, BRIGHTSIDE, out January 14th via Dualtone.
As part of the announcement, The Lumineers shared the album’s title track alongside a visualizer. Not only did they release it on streaming services, but they also debuted it live on Jimmy Kimmel Live!.
“The song ‘BRIGHTSIDE’ was recorded in a single day,” The Lumineers’ Wesley Schultz says of the single. “It’s like a 15-year-old’s fever dream, an American love story in all its glory and heartbreak. The last couple left, on the run from something and all alone…”
Watch The Lumineers’ performance of “Brightside” on Kimmel and the visualizer for the track below.
The band’s longtime collaborator Simone Felice produced the album, which was mixed, engineered, and produced by David Baron. The Lumineers recorded the album over two sessions in winter and spring of 2021.
The forthcoming album serves as their first new music in over two years. The nine-song collection will be a joyous, celebratory, and spontaneous body of work.

Back in May, The Lumineers released a live EP called Live from The Last Night of Tour. On March 11th in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, The Lumineers played their last show before the pandemic struck, shutting down live music. Luckily for us, they recorded the one-of-a-kind show.
