JUKEBOX THE GHOST Release New Single 'The Great Unknown'; Announce Summer Tour

Jukebox the Ghost Release New Single "The Great Unknown" - The Perfect Summertime Anthem

"'The Great Unknown' is anthemic and upbeat, full of rollicking drums, confidence-boosting piano, and singer Ben Thornewill's energetic crooning and belting - basically it's exactly how you'd expect a new Jukebox the Ghost release to sound. As always, Thornewill proves his ability to sing about any topic and turn it into something danceable. Referred to as 'his own personal summer anthem,' we can't think of a better track to drop right as the warm weather finally appears to be here to stay."
- The Wild Honey Pie

After touring behind 2012's Safe Travels, Jukebox the Ghost continued their own journey, heading to northeast Los Angeles to record their fouth LP with producers including Dan Romer (A Great Big World, Jenny Owen Youngs) and Andrew Dawson (an engineer for acts like Kanye West, fun. and the Pet Shop Boys). Though the album likely won't come out until at least autumn, the group recently released its first single, the swelling, four-0n-the-floor "The Great Unknown." In the meantime, drummer Jesse Kristin took some time to document the recording process, stepping out from behind the kit to caption a few photos of the band - himself, singer-pianist Ben Thornewill and singer-guitarist Tommy Siegel - at work:

"Ben and Tommy in Dan Romer's control room in Los Angeles, probably searching for the right synth tone. Yes, yes, yes, NO, NO!"
