2 min read

(AUSTRALIA) Foster The People are set to release their highly anticipated new album, Supermodel, on March 14 via Columbia Records and Sony Music Entertainment Australia. 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.”

Supermodel will be available for pre-order from Wednesday January 15 via http://smarturl.it/SuperModel, and will include an instant download of the album’s first single Coming Of Age at fosterthepeople.com and select digital retailers. Fans can also listen to Coming Of Age now on the band’s website, where the song is set to a visual documenting the creation of a mural inspired by the new album.

Foster the People is Mark 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 copies worldwide including Platinum sales in Australia, and reached #1 on the ARIA Albums Chart. The album generated over 9 million singles worldwide, including the 6 x Platinum and #1 ARIA hit single Pumped Up KicksTorches also spawned the hit singles Call It What You WantHoudini, 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.
