The Alex Ebert-led super-size band Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros announced their upcoming sophomore album, set for release 29 May, 2012. The as-of-now untitled follow-up to 2009’s Up From Below, which spawned seminal hits 'Home' and 'Janglin,' was produced by Ebert and the rest of the band.

The aforementioned flamboyant frontman spoke of the upcoming album in a press release, saying, "The making of this album has spanned a time of immense perseverance and, thankfully, co-creation. Making this album has been a test of our faith in ourselves and in the universe, and brought us closer together and in greater harmony with one another ... A deluge of music has been written and recorded, and we are intensely excited to share it with anyone who want to feel it."
