L.A.’s Foster The People make their Atlantic Records debut with their new single “Lost In Space” released on May 31st. It’s from their long awaited fourth studio album, Paradise State of Mind, set to drop on August 16th. The band’s first new release in over three years is produced by lead singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Mark Foster and co-produced by bandmate Isom Innis. Foster says, “The record started as a case study of the late Seventies crossover between disco, funk, gospel, jazz, and all those sounds. It was such a beautiful moment in time, when these different styles of music were cross-referencing each other – artists like Nile Rogers and Chic, the Tom Tom Club and Giorgio Moroder. I wanted to dive into that and figure out what they were doing. I was also thinking about how that era has musical and social parallels to the time that we’re in now, with the giant recession in the Seventies, the political turmoil post-Vietnam, and other major tensions. But then you see these expressions of joy happening through music, and I started thinking about joy as an act of defiance.” Foster The People’s massive breakthrough single “Pumped Up Kicks” was from their debut album, Torches in 2011. It now  has over 1 billion worldwide streams via Spotify alone. Foster The People will be playing at Austin City Limits Music Festival this October.
