Edward Sharpe And The Magnetic Zeros PersonA Out Today; To Perform At Coachella This Weekend


“PersonA, their most adventurous album yet” – Entertainment Weekly

 “The band’s most risk-taking, freewheeling album yet.” – Rolling Stone

 “I’ve liked moments, but haven’t given myself completely over- well that changed in five and a half minutes.  So now, spreading it to over 100 countries, Edward Sharpe And The Magnetic Zeros, ‘Wake Up The Sun.'” -Zane Lowe on Premiering “Wake Up The Sun”

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, the euphorically confrontational 10-piece band is back with their highly anticipated fourth album, PersonA, available everywhere today.

PersonA’s first single, “No Love Like Yours,” was released to critical acclaim and the group successfully made waves with their accompanying Olivia Wilde-directed music video. This further indicated that the ten gifted, original musicians in this ever-evolving group have reached a new height in terms of creativity and musicianship. Recorded in New Orleans without studio tricks like click tracks, digitally doubling of voices or other manipulations, the ten tracks are clearly influenced by the jazz-saturated sound of that city.  Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros’ frontman Alex Ebert says the evolution is natural, “we had long been a social experiment first, musicians second.  Over time, though, we were emerging, by virtue of hours spent, into a group of musicians who could really play together.”

Ebert has not been idle in the three years since the band’s self-titled “Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros” album was released back in 2013. He has scored a number of films and earned a Golden Globe for Best Original Score on the film All Is  Lost .
