Supermodel is the highly anticipated new album from Foster The People featuring first single “Coming of Age.” Produced by Paul Epworth, the globally influenced album is the follow-up to the group’s critically acclaimed 2011 debut Torches. Recorded in various locations around the world, Supermodel began as frontman Mark Foster and producer Paul Epworth set up a writing studio in a riad in Essaouira, Morocco at the end of 2012. “We didn’t have any rules. We just created as much as we could in seven days,” Foster recalls, “And in the spirit of wanderlust and discovery we ended up stumbling on the musical identity of what this record was going to feel like.”

From Morocco the album continued to migrate with Foster and the band. Work continued at Woodshed Studios in Malibu, Henson Studios and Bronson Island in Los Angeles and was finished at Epworth’s Wolf Tone Studios in London. Foster the People achieved success with the 2011 release of their debut album Torches, featuring the #1 hit single “Pumped Up Kicks,” which was declared “the year’s anthem” by SPIN. Foster the People garnered three GRAMMY nominations for their monumental debut, including Best Alternative Album, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for “Pumped Up Kicks” and Best Short Form Music Video for “Houdini.”

The vinyl version of Supermodel is pressed on 180 gram vinyl and includes a download code.

Prior to the breakthrough viral success of their 2010 single, “Pumped Up Kicks,” Los Angeles’ Foster the People were a relatively unknown studio project for singer/songwriter Mark Foster. Four years, a full-length debut album (2011’s Torches), numerous tours, and two Grammy nominations later, Foster the People are a tested live act with a strong, expectant fan base. The band’s 2014 sophomore album, Supermodel, finds Foster and company sticking to their winning pop formula, while evincing a more organic, less claustrophobic studio sound. Produced by Foster, along with Paul Epworth (Adele, Bruno Mars, Florence + the Machine), Supermodel is full of infectious, dance-oriented music that touches upon ’80s-influenced dance-rock (“Coming of Age”), soulful psychedelia (“Pseudologia Fantastica”), and melodic acoustic rock (“Ask Yourself”) in equal measure. Prior to “Pumped Up Kicks,” Foster the People were pretty much a studio entity, and Supermodel does reveal a more live-sounding aesthetic that feels bigger and more Technicolor in approach than Torches. Epworth and Foster expand the group’s sound with brassy horns, echo-chamber guitars, gigantic, circular drumbeats, shimmery synthesizers, and, in the case of “The Angelic Welcome of Mr. Jones,” layered, Beach Boys-influenced group harmonies. Once again, Foster proves his knack for coming up with hummable pop hooks, and tracks like the funky “Best Friend” and Afro-pop-infused “Are You What You Want to Be?” stick in your ears as much as they get your feet tapping. Additionally, if Torches scratched the surface of twenty-something angst, then Supermodel takes that exploration a few steps deeper, revealing a more introspective, enigmatic, world-weary tone. On “Pseudologia Fantastica,” Foster croons, “Faded and worn at the seams/A psychotropic wanderlust/Sick and laughing their words/Bared their teeth into the wall/I promised I’d rid this world of feral animals.
