Stream: Fun.

We're inordinately excited for the next LP from Fun.. Lead singer Nate Ruess has penned some of our favorite pop-rock from the last decide (in The Format with 2003's Interventions + Lullabies, and 2006's Dog Problems), and guitarist Jack Antonoff adds some nice guitar prowess (fresh from his band, Steel Train). Fun. is consistently pegged as just that (fun!)-- giddy vocals mixed with big, swooping progressions and awesome instrumentation, putting the theatricality of bands like Queen back in pseudo-mainstream pop rock. Their latest track from the forthcoming Some Nights, "Carry On," explores bigger, bolder studio sounds without the use of too many auxiliary instruments. And like debut single "We Are Young," it's got a few large, sing-along moments worthy of Ruess's melody-making prowess.



Some Nights is out 2/21 (not soon enough). The "We Are Young" single is out today with B-side "One Foot." Grab it here.

Check out the band on a tour near you.
