“Hope is a risky thing,” says The Lumineers singer-guitarist and co-founder Wesley Schultz. “It doesn’t ignore the danger, but rather it believes in the face of danger. BRIGHTSIDE is an album that hopes, even against the sadness and staggering odds.”
To celebrate today’s arrival of BRIGHTSIDE, The Lumineers have shared a visually arresting official music video for the album’s “WHERE WE ARE,” premiering today via Facebook at Noon Eastern Time. The video and song are based on a real life event involving Schultz and his future wife. It was directed by The Lumineers Creative Director and Schultz’s longtime friend Nicholas Sutton Bell and his brother Dylan Bell.
