Foster The People will release their highly anticipated new album Supermodel on 24th March via Columbia Records with the first single “Coming Of Age” set to be released on the 16th March. Produced by Paul Epworth, the globally influenced Supermodel is the follow-up to the group’s critically acclaimed 2011 debut Torches.
Recorded in various locations around the world, Supermodel began as frontman Mark Foster and producer Paul Epworth set up a writing studio in a riad in Essaouira, Morocco at the end of 2012. “We didn't have any rules. We just created as much as we could in seven days,” Foster recalls, “And in the spirit of wanderlust and discovery we ended up stumbling on the musical identity of what this record was going to feel like.”
Foster the People is Foster, Cubbie Fink and Mark Pontius. Founded by Foster in 2009, the group achieved success with the 2011 release of their debut album Torches, which has sold nearly 2 million albums and over 9 million singles worldwide. Torches features the hit singles “Pumped Up Kicks,” “Don’t Stop (Colour On The Walls),” “Houdini” and “Helena Beat.”
Foster the People garnered three GRAMMY nominations for their monumental debut - including Best Alternative Album, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for “Pumped Up Kicks” and Best Short Form Music Video for “Houdini” - as well as a Brit Award nomination for International Breakthrough in 2012 as well as two Q Award nominations.
