“Take Me Back” is the second song to be released from the 3x GRAMMY® Award-nominated group’s fourth studio album and Atlantic Records debut, Paradise State of Mind. The album arrives on Friday, August 16.

Foster The People will celebrate their new music and more with a live performance at Austin City Limits Music Festival (Oct 4-6 & 11-13).

Currently boasting close to 8 billion worldwide streams and almost 2.5 billion lifetime YouTube video views, Foster the People proved a worldwide sensation with their kaleidoscopic brand of dance-fueled pop music. Formed in Los Angeles in 2009 with multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter Mark Foster at the helm, the band exploded with their 2010 debut single, “Pumped Up Kicks,” which topped Billboard’s “Alternative Songs” chart before spending eight consecutive weeks at #3 on the overall “Hot 100” and rising to the upper reaches of charts around the world. Currently RIAA Diamond-certified with 14x Platinum sales in the US, the track earned Foster The People their first GRAMMY® Award nomination (for “Best Pop Duo/Group Performance”) as well as the 2012 Billboard Music Award for “Top Rock Song.” Now with over 1 billion worldwide streams via Spotify alone, “Pumped Up Kicks” was joined by an equally phenomenal official music video which attained placement among YouTube‘s prestigious Billion Views Club.

2011 saw Foster The People unveil their 3x Platinum-certified debut album, Torches, which went to #1 on both Billboard’s “Top Rock Albums” and “Top Alternative Albums” while reaching #8 on the Billboard 200 and later receiving a GRAMMY® Award nomination as “Best Alternative Album.” What’s more, the album’s “Houdini” earned the band a third GRAMMY® nod for “Best Short Form Music Video.” Supermodel followed in 2014, which fueled in part by the Gold-certified “Coming of Age,” hit #1 on both Billboard’s “Top Rock Albums” and “Top Alternative Albums” while debuting at #3 on the overall Billboard 200.

Foster The People toured the world while working out material for their third album, 2017’s electronic soul-flavored Sacred Hearts Club. The Gold-certified LP delivered yet another blockbuster hit in the 4x Platinum “Sit Next To Me,” which scored over 200 million worldwide streams while spending 20 weeks on the Billboard “Hot 100.” A series of stand-alone singles were then followed in 2020 by the independent EP, In the Darkest of Nights, Let the Birds Sing, highlighted by such singles as “Lamb’s Wool.” 2021 saw Foster The People celebrate the tenth anniversary of Torches with the extended deluxe edition, Torches X, along with a series of special Torches live shows streamed around the world. Now, in 2024, Foster The People return at last with Paradise State of Mind and much more to come.
