As always, fun. pays tribute to their fans and supporters; today, the band streams the ENTIRE ALBUM on their website a week prior to street date. At 4:30am this morning, frontman Nate Ruess writes a thank you note, “we’ve been freaking out about this [album] for almost a year. But this album isn't for us anymore. It finally gets to live within the ears of whom it was intended for... it's for you.” Nate continues, “When I think thematically of what this album is about, I think about how many of the songs are about trying to figure out just who you are, and the optimism and perseverance that results in doing so. Fortunately, that's how I feel when I'm at a fun. show. You're allowed to be anyone as long as you know the words. For almost 10 years you guys have given me something to belong to and I sincerely hope that this album belongs to you. It's ended up being our way of saying ‘thank you’ for being who you are. And please keep being that person.”
