Foster the People to Release New Album in 2014

It’s been almost three years since we’ve had a new album from Foster the People and either I enjoy their music a lot and have missed them so or this is just unusual for any band to wait this long for another release. They’ve made it clear that they wanted to be worth the wait. After a successful debut album and laying low from touring, the band has left fans guessing as to when or if they would ever make a return. I’m thrilled to announce tonight that Foster the People has released some word on their whereabouts and it looks like we’ll be getting a new album in 2014 – early 2014 to be specific and a new single in January!

“It’s not the record that people are gonna expect us to release second. It’s definitely an evolution for us, and it’s a more polarizing record for us, so I’m excited to see how it’s received, for better or worse,” Foster told Rolling Stone.

From what it sounds like, it looks like Mark Foster will be switching things up for this second album and holding back on the electronics that are so consistent throughout Torches.

“I went into it wanting to do something more organic and human, because the first record was so electronic and synthetic – in a cool way, I’m not putting it down, that’s just what it was,” Foster said. “So this record, I wanted to make something more human and let the songs breathe and grow and turn and take left turns and not come back if they want to. It’s a brave record.”



  1. Coldplay is apparently releasing their next album in 2014 as well. I’m super stoked for both both release.
