Of Monsters and Men
have announced the release of their long-anticipated third album, Fever Dream, due out July 26 via Republic Records.
It’s been a whole four years since the Icelandic quintet’s 2015 Beneath The Skin, and twice that since the release of their smash debut, “Little Talks.” Feeling old yet?
Preceded by plenty of cryptic social media teasing, the band ushered in their Fever Dream era this past Friday (May 3) with a poppy new single titled “Alligator.” Seeming to leave behind their trademark ska-skirting folk, “Alligator” swaps out the mountain sound for something more electric, a sound akin to that of acts like The Naked and Famous and Grouplove.
“We are so excited about ‘Alligator,’ the first release from our upcoming album,” the band said in a statement. “The song very much speaks to the excitement and energy that we feel about being back. We can’t wait to share more music and see everyone again.”
