Fitz and the Tantrums went into the studio to record their second full-length, More Than Just a Dream, with the goal of moving away from the retro sound that embodied 2010’s Pickin’ Up the Pieces. Released this Tuesday, May 7, More Than Just a Dream was produced by Tony Hoffer, whose body of work includes mixing duties for Beck and Silversun Pickups. The new record features “thick walls of synthesizers and club-ready beats” that were a result of the band focusing “on making it a fun record,” according to The Columbus Dispatch. The band will be on tour throughout the US this summer, including a stop in Austin on July 13!
