fun.'s "Some Nights" Makes it to "Stream Day"...

Posted by - 09:46 AM on 02/13/12
fun.'s new album will be unveiled to the world today, having made it to "stream day" without leaking. That's quite an accomplishment in this day and age. When the album goes up for stream we'll post about it on the homepage for a full discussion and lovefest, but in the meantime - the album thread is a really great place to hang out with fun. fans anticipating the new album. Just thought I'd toss up a quick article to point fans that way.

Update
: Some songs are going up now.

Update #2: It's up. Go in with an open mind ... and enjoy!

Love Nate and even though I know I won't enjoy this, as I can't get into fun. or this of music, I'm happy to see him and the band get this kind of exposure. It's great and well-deserved. Hope they blow up with this album. More people need to hear his voice.

Much love.

EDIT: wow, Nate sounds fucking phenomenal on this. Shit. "One Foot" is just dumb good.

MTV, Alt, Rolling Stone I would imagine. Smart move by them with this one. What do you think it'll sell first week?

Props to the label and everyone who received a copy for doing the right thing and not being a dick and leaking.

Good job not leaking the album. I hope it helps and does not hurt the band.

Any time they want to come back to NYC, that would be great. It will be nice hearing a different set, for a change.

I haven't seen much press on MTV in regard to the album itself ... I do think RS and Spin got it. Print media and their (lame) long leads.

Dunno ... the first single (pun!) will help, but albums just don't sell much anymore. I'd think 12k-18kmaybe? Totally just making up a random guess at this point.

The masterpiece that is Night Shades only did 9,000 with a (s)hit single...
