Written and recorded in focused bursts of creativity in LA and London, the album sees them confidently maintain their unique sonic palette while pushing forward into bolder territories, channeling personal experience into a delicious mélange of pop styles. “We were going for that holy grail of songwriting,” says Aluna. “It was an attitude of ‘let’s see what else we can do’,” adds George. At the same time, it marks an opening of their creative process to new inputs and influences, as exemplified in its diverse list of collaborators. 

Aluna says, “It started to feel a bit like we had all these friends in music that we liked hanging out with but we haven’t shared AlunaGeorge with anyone else, and at some point we were like ‘why not?’ Let’s open it up a bit more. We wanted to let people in a bit more now that we’re more confident in our sound”.

AlunaGeorge, which is singer/lyricist Aluna Francis and producer George Reid, are currently on the road for their “I’m In Control” Tour, which includes a headlining show at Lincoln Hall in Chicago, plus several festival dates (Promowest, Forecastle, Lollapalooza, Panorama, Life Is Beautiful and more) before wrapping up on August 3rd in Seattle. The band will then join Sia on her Nostalgic For The Present arena tour, which kicks off on September 29th.  Please see below for all dates.
