Mark your calendars: Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros will return with their third studio album on July 23rd. Expect the title and album artwork to be revealed shortly.
According to a press release issued last year, the album was recorded during the same session which led to Here. In the middle of the recording process we realized we were essentially making a double album. Being four years since our last album, the writing explored a wide variety of subject and sound, as it turned out we had a lot to say, explained the bands Alex Ebert in a statement. Instead of putting it out all at once, we found that two different albums seemed to be forming. Alone these albums are albums. Together these albums express a varying and so relatively living portrait of our lives.
