Tom Higgenson, frontman of the Plain White T’s, has finished up the band’s new album with mastering engineer Brian “Big Bass” Gardner at Bernie Grundman Mastering in Hollywood. “Rhythm of Love,” is the first single from the forthcoming album “Wonders of the Younger.”
“It’s all about pushing the boundaries of our creativity and musical imagination combined with a dose of nostalgia,” notes Higgenson. He describes the new album as a collection of songs designed to evoke the feeling of awe and the yearning for adventure remembered from youth.
Sonically the biggest and most lush of all their releases, it also marks the first time that Tim Lopez sings lead, on two tracks.
Plain White T’s was formed in Chicago,1997, by high school friends Tom Higgenson and Dave Tirio. The innovative group started out with a mostly underground following in Chicago basements, clubs, and bars in its early years.
The band gained international popularity with the song “Hey There Delilah”, which received two Grammy nominations. The band ventured into the mainstream following the success of that song and the well-received “Hate (I Really Don’t Like You)” from the album “Every Second Counts.” The following 2008 album, “Big Bad World,” included the impressive hit “1,2,3,4.”
“Wonders of the Younger,” produced by Ian Kirkpatrick, is set for October release from Hollywood Records. Learn more at: http://www.plainwhitets.com
