Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros’ third album is out today, and nobody is more excited than Mumford and Sons. The English band had the following to say about the Zeros in a statement issued today on the its website:
“You may have heard by now that we really like Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. In fact, we love them so much that we heard their new record, went mental, and begged them to let us release said album on our own record label, Gentlemen of the Road. This will be the first non-Mumford & Sons release that we’ve ever done, and there’s no better way to kick things off than with this magical record, which we think will be dearly loved for a long time, not just by us, but by lots of people.
“So we wanted you to hear this from us. Listen to Better Days. You’ll have a better day. And listen to Life Is Hard, because you’ll never celebrate life’s complications with more joy or abandon. And listen to If I Were Free for a real journey. They’re just amazing songs, by an amazing band, and we’re really excited.”
