Exactly one year ago, Foster The People was playing a free monthly residency at Los Angeles venue, The Echo, and had just released their début album, Torches.
Since then, they’ve won over crowds, multiple shows, festivals, and had the chance to play with one of their musical idols, the Beach Boys, at the 2012 GRAMMY Awards.
“Call It What You Want,” but the success of Foster The People doesn’t seem to be slowing down.
The band even divulged at the recent NME Brit Awards in the UK that they are planning to release a new single by the end of 2012 and have a new album out in 2013.
Mark Foster even hinted on the sonic direction they’re planning to take with their sophomore endeavor.

“Hopefully we’ll have a song or two out by the end of the year,” the front man continued. “I’d like to get the album done pretty quickly but we’re not going to put something out until its ready. I’d say in 2013 it’ll be out.”
Foster the People are known for their modern sound, but the band wants to try something a little more retro with their sophomore album.
“I’d love to make a more analogue record and not so digital but at the same time still modern,” Foster clarified. “I think it will be an evolution of the sound we’ve created so far.”
Lana Del Rey has been stuck in my head for two days straight. I need a new song to replace it. Any suggestions?—
