The upcoming album is a collection of crisp, electro-pop inspired songs. Themed around chance, the album spins out from the serendipity-marveling “Crazy Lucky” into reflective, if relatable, fare such as the vibratory, folk-inflected “Insane,” the falsetto-kissed “One Heart Beating,” and the more sprawling “The Great Unknown.”
“We made an album that was poppier and more concise songwriting,” says lead singer / songwriter Kevin Griffin. “We wanted to give our old fans something familiar, but we wanted to attract new fans.
This is evident in the band’s first single “Crazy Lucky” hit No. #37 on the Top 40 Hot AC Charts. PRESS HERE to listen to the track on USA Today.
Later this month, the band will partner up with Live Nation and Yahoo to live-stream their September 21, 2014 concert live from House of Blues, Anaheim. They are one of the bands scheduled to perform on the Live Nation Channel on Yahoo Screen – streaming 365 concerts over a 12-month period – including acts such as OneRepublic, Justin Timberlake, Panic! At The Disco, and more.
Better Than Ezra quickly became a staple in the ‘90s pop/rock scene following their debut album Deluxe in 1995 via Elektra and immediately releasing two new albums within three years of being signed. Friction, Baby, released in 1996, and How Does Your Garden Grow? In 2001, Better Than Ezra released the critically acclaimed Closer, followed by Before the Robots in 2005. The latter featured the hit “Juicy,” licensed by several commercials and brands, was also featured in the promotional advertisements for the popular ABC television series Desperate Housewives.
