2016 Released Album On Vinyl LP!
Fitz and The Tantrums' natural exuberance permeates their self-titled album,
which celebrates walking to the beat of your own drum. Lead singer, Michael
Fitzpatrick, says of 2016 released record, "We've always tried to push
ourselves at every turn. For our third album, we continued to challenge
ourselves, taking care not to write the same record again." "Turn It Up,"
Fitz exhorts at the top of album opener and first single "HandClap." The
horn-and-beats fueled track captures the exhilarating sense of promise - and
danger - that a night out and a new romance hold. The staccato "Complicated"
paints a relationship that's packed with both chemistry and conflict and bursts
into an unexpected cheer. Echo and otherworldly keyboards make "Tricky" an
intoxicating dance-floor anthem and a warning to any future lover, while "A
Place For Us," the album closer, encapsulates the band's belief that there is a
place in the world for each of us to belong, regardless of our differences.
"Overall, this is an album about desire - the desire for intimacy, for sex,
for acceptance on your own terms and the struggle not to compromise,"
Fitz and The Tantrums was recorded in the band's hometown of Los Angeles. Jesse
Shatkin (Sia, Matt & Kim) produced eight of the album's eleven tracks. Fitz
produced "Fadeback" while Joel Little (Lorde) produced "Do What You Want" and
Ricky Reed (Jessie J) helmed "HandClap."
