"are Not the words you say, but how you say them". It's the first sentence of "Donna", the song that opens "III" , the new studio album that the band american folk-rock The Lumineers published today and presented at the WiZink Center of Madrid on the 2nd of November. It is their third album after releasing in 2012 their first album, of the same title, and "Cleopatra", in 2016.

it Could also be a pullita veiled to those who canturreaban without much attention to its earlier themes. "Many of these songs were, in secret, dark; but sometimes sounded more cheerful than they were. A lot of it has to do with the letters," he says on a phone conversation to ABC, their lead vocalist and guitarist, Wesley Schultz (1982), a native of Ramsey, New Jersey, united States), where he met the co-founder of the band, Jeremiah Fraites . The clearest example of this was "Ho Hey," the catchy anthem of 2012 on an emotional split, however, "it became the dance of the wedding of many people" . Schultz has his own theory: "Just heard the sound and made it his own song".

the same thing is Happening with the party "Glory", the third track and the first name that appears in "III"; the other two are a Junior and Jimmy Sparks. "It is an album about three members of a family.

The focus is on when someone in your family is fighting against a demon personal ", says Schultz , in allusion to the addiction to alcohol or gambling. The album is divided into three chapters; each one, of three songs, dedicated to a generation of the family Sparks: grandmother, son and grandson.

Wesley and "Jer" —as we called the interviewee— they began to ruminate the idea of writing an album in fascicles over a decade ago. It was a long delivery: first came the songs, and then realized that they "had the characters on your site, especially to Gloria and Jimmy Sparks". "I like it, above all, writing characters that actually make sense", she explains.

The first title proposed was the most explicit "Love, loss, and crime" .

This descent by the genealogical tree they have been allowed to play with the audiovisual. In the line of other colleagues of the same profession ("I Am Easy to Find', of The National ), have recorded a video clip for every song, which together is a short film directed by the film director Kevin Phillips . "We have always been interested in sounds very cinematic, but we had never been able to do it at this level. Between the previous album and this, I began to realize that I used to watch videos and not always listened to them necessarily," says Schultz, who compares the "reign" current YouTube with the MTV of yesteryear.

it was His intention that, by seeing the videos, his fans could not remove the images of the head : "Had a story to tell, but sometimes people don't realize it, so you have to bring it to life on screen," he explains.

For more familiarity, Schultz and Fraites were parents during the writing and recording of new album . "Somehow, it was scary because we were very accustomed to not having children and just go on our own and write a lot," recalls the vocalist, which acknowledges that use music as "a therapist free of charge". "I think we have done the best album to date under the circumstances, as having a child, that you'd think that would be chaotic and insane, but it was really lovely," she continues.
