With their self-titled debut, indie-folk upstarts the Lumineers became the sleeper success story of 2012, earning platinum sales and two Grammy nominations. On August 20th, Dualtone Records will release a deluxe edition of that album, fleshed out with five bonus tracks, a 28-page photo booklet and a 25-minute DVD of behind-the-scenes footage, backstage interviews and music videos.
For now, fans can enjoy an exclusive first listen to the anthemic "Darlene." Opening with a breezy acoustic strum, the track swells into something quite grand, embellished with piano, tom-tom flourishes and the anguished croon of frontman Wesley Schultz. "I give you my ring in your shaking hand," he sings. "You give me a sting with your crazy plan."
The Lumineers Deluxe Edition bonus tracks:
1. "Ain't Nobody's Problem"
2. "This Must Be the Place (Naïve Melody)"
5. "Slow It Down (live)"
