The Lumineers On World Cafe

Hear the hit-making folk-rock band perform songs from its new album, Cleopatra.
Fueled by the ubiquitous stomp-along "Ho Hey," The Lumineers' self-titled 2012 debut album went to No. 2, and "Ho Hey" itself sold more than two million copies. The Lumineers released a follow-up, Cleopatra, last week. In today's session, the band performs some of the new music on stage at World Cafe Live. Wesley Schultz and Jeremiah Fraites discuss their post-"Ho Hey" roller-coaster ride and explain how they rooted themselves in a similar creative pattern to their first album as they worked on the new one.
