EDITORS’ NOTES

A collection of intimate stories about love, loneliness, and redemption, The Lumineer’s second full-length album has all the heart-on-sleeve hallmarks of their breakthrough debut. But here, the character-driven vignettes—about the lonely new girl in town, Ophelia, and the Egyptian queen of the title—feature thoughtful, luxurious production. The combination is powerful; with churning guitars and sweeping emotion, these are beautiful stories to tell.

It's okay...

Hkay2,

There are several good songs on here. But, that being said, this album feels "sleepy" compared to their foot-stomping debut album. I find myself skipping about half the album because it's too slow and drags for me. I do love the first few songs, but after waiting so long for this album, I wish I liked more than just half of it.

4 years gone, and they still got it

ItsiChrisGee,

Both my mind and heart are full knowing The Lumineers are finally back. Ophelia was worth every pain staking month that passed patiently waiting for these guys. Same old charm, same old foot stomping power, same old attention to detail; The Lumineers knew they had to deliver and they have absolutely surpassed that goal. The sophomore album is destined to be great.

About The Lumineers

The Lumineers, a folk-rock trio out of Denver, Colorado, deliver an acoustic-based Americana sound that touches a lot of stylistic bases, from folk to gospel to heartland rock and the narrative end of country, all with interesting rhythmic twists and turns. The band had its beginnings in 2002 when Jeremiah Fraites lost his 19-year-old brother Josh to a drug overdose. Fraites and his brother's best friend, Wesley Schultz, turned to music to deal with their sorrow, and were soon writing songs and gigging together in the New York area as a duo. After relocating to Denver, the pair met classically trained multi-instrumentalist Neyla Pekarek after placing a craigslist ad for a cellist, and things clicked for the trio, who began playing open-mike nights at the Meadowlark -- a basement club where local songwriters gathered.

The band released a demo EP in 2009, following it with an eponymous EP in 2011. A proper first album, again simply called The Lumineers, appeared from Dualtone Records in 2012. The album was critically praised and its infectious single "Ho Hey," which had long been the centerpiece of the band's live sets, ended up breaking into Top Ten markets globally, eventually going double platinum. The Lumineers crossed and recrossed the globe as they toured in support of their debut, earning a pair of Grammy nominations along the way. With their raised profile, they began branching out in 2014, placing a song on AMC's popular zombie series The Walking Dead and supplying the music for the song "The Hanging Tree," the musical centerpiece of the film The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Pt. 1.

In April 2016, the Lumineers released their long-awaited follow-up album, Cleopatra. It debuted at number one on the Billboard 200. In 2017, in addition to opening for U2's Joshua Tree anniversary tour, the band released the Record Store Day single Song Seeds, which featured three versions of two songs found on Cleopatra. ~ Steve Leggett
