British indie-pop trio London Grammar have announced that they will be releasing their second studio album this coming June. The record will be titled ‘Truth Is A Beautiful Thing’ and follows 2013’s breakout album ‘If You Wait’.
London Grammar were formed in 2009 by vocalist Hannah Reid and guitarist Dan Rothman. A year later they were joined by Dominic Major and moved to London to pursue a career in music. Following a series of low key gigs at small London bars, the trio were signed to Ministry of Sound. In 2012 they released their first single ‘Hey Now’ via YouTube and were soon considered one of the best upcoming young bands on the underground circuit.
The band released their debut studio album ‘If You Wait’ in 2013. The record peaked at number two in the UK Albums Chart and was supported by seven singles including the huge hits ‘Wasting My Young Years’ and ‘Strong’. ‘If You Wait’ has since been certified 2X platinum in the UK.
London Grammar have been working on their sophomore album over the course of the last year. On January 1, 2017 the band released a new single titled ‘Rooting For You’. If was followed exactly one month later by another single titled ‘Big Picture’.
If has now been confirmed that both tracks will feature on an upcoming album titled ‘Truth Is A Beautiful Thing’, which has been produced by Paul Epworth, Greg Kurstin, Jon Hopkins, Tim Bran and Roy Kerr.
In a recent interview with NME, singer Hannah Reid said of the new album: “The first album was a lot more about relationships, but then the second one is too – but in a different way,” “It’s probably about the relationship you have with yourself, rather than one specific other person. The relationship that us three had on the road, and there’s a lot about the meaning of life in general, which is SO lame, but that is what we talk about!”
