The first single from 'Cleopatra' comes before a world tour...
The Lumineers frontman Wesley Schultz claims he "learned tips on how to dance" to the video to new single 'Ophelia', removed from forthcoming album 'Cleopatra'.
“For the background music video Ophelia, our close friend Issac Ravishankara, who directed the Stubborn Love music video from your first record, brought us cure that involved me dancing inside streets whilst it was raining so I was required to learn choreography to the first time within my life," Schultz said. "I learned how you can dance just for this music video."
Schultz is talking up new album 'Cleopatra', and that is due on April 8, plus the writing process behind the tracks:
"The record is our greatest hits reflecting what’s happened to us during the last three years. We attemptedto come up with the perfect version of the song, and then we recorded lots of different iterations, changing the tempos, dressing 'em up, stripping ‘em down," he stated.

"It took plenty of work to cause them to become sound simple. We’re very obsessed with the process. It was an exceptionally intense and exquisite experience. There was many battling, lots of tears, but a majority of amazing stuff was released, as well as the end, we had been much better off. It transformed our relationship."
The new track has recently gained a lot more than two million Spotify streams.
“We took a similar approach on this occasion as we did while using first album, recording demos in a house we rented from the original Denver neighbourhood where we first moved,” Schultz said.
