The Lumineers are the 2x grammy-award nominated band with 18 number #1 hits. AM Radio is the new single from their upcoming BRIGHTSIDE album (out in January!!).
The recording of their BRIGHTSIDE album was a different experience for The Lumineers. The pandemic threw them into a writing state and mindset that they describe as similar to 15-year-olds experimenting with music at the moment. What they describe as the ‘humbling’ experience of everyone being in the same position in lockdown meant they approached BRIGHTSIDE with fresh eyes and excited ears.
“‘A.M. Radio’ features the biggest chorus we’ve ever recorded, while colliding with an intimate verse,” says The Lumineers’ singer-guitarist and co-founder Wesley Schultz, “The song is an anthem about the supernatural pull of one’s calling in life – for Jeremiah and me, it was songs.”

BRIGHTSIDE marks The Lumineers’ first new music in more than two years, as well as the band’s most joyous and spontaneous piece of work thus far.
The nine-song collection sees The Lumineers’ co-founders/co-songwriters Wesley Schultz and Jeremiah Fraites performing virtually all of the eclectic, effervescent instrumentation, with Baron on a wide variety of keyboards and backing vocals and more by Simone Felice, touring members Byron Isaacs and Lauren Jacobson, famed backing singer Cindy Mizelle (Bruce Springsteen, Dave Matthews Band), The Felice Brothers’ James Felice, and acclaimed singer-songwriter Diana DeMuth.
