Postmodern Jukebox to Launch International Tour

Postmodern Jukebox to Launch International Tour

In the two years since the release of its best-selling compilation album The Essentials, Postmodern Jukebox has grown from a viral sensation to a worldwide phenomenon. Founder and mastermind Scott Bradlee has taken his offbeat vision of gramophone music for a smartphone world and transformed it into a throwback empire, with celebrity guests alongside world class vocal talent and a touring show that has thrilled music lovers of all generations across six continents.

With The Essentials II set for release on November 2 via Concord Records and Postmodern Jukebox Records, the ensemble has launched an international tour that will take them through the UK, Iceland, Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, Israel and across the United States and Canada. (See below for full tour listings).

The Essentials II charts the astounding growth and time-warping sensibilities of PMJ, collecting 18 more favorites from the group's era-colliding mash-ups. There's a heavy metal anthem twisted into Motor City soul, a '90s boy-band earworm refitted with angelic doo-wop harmonies, the Biebs and Britney turned black and white, even a sad clown turning a party-girl anthem into a melancholy ballad.

"The Essentials II gives a hint of things to come," he says. "When PMJ started, we were known for viral hits and being timely. Over time I've begun to think of PMJ differently, as an amazing platform where we don't need to do things just for attention anymore, we can just put out great music. I take more chances on the arrangements and the casting, and we've covered bigger or more interesting songs. We're still uncovering aspects of Postmodern Jukebox. You learn as you go; that's just part of being an artist."
