Roosevelt Announces New Album 'Young Romance' and Headlining US Tour - BassPlayer.com
NEW ALBUM YOUNG ROMANCE OUT SEPTEMBER 28th, 2018 ON CITY SLANG / GRECO-ROMAN

Cologne, Germany-based Marius Lauber AKA Roosevelt today announced a North American headlining tour that begins at Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg on December 4th and includes performances at Toronto’s Mod Club (12/10), Chicago’s Bottom Lounge (12/12), LA’s Teregram Ballroom (12/14), and more. Tickets go on sale Friday, July 20th. See below for a full itinerary.

Roosevelt will be debuting songs from his anticipated new album Young Romance, set for release on September 28th, 2018 via City Slang / Greco-Roman. Listen to the euphoric, sun-drenched lead single “Under The Sun” via YouTube HERE.

In the two years since the release of his self-titled debut album that reached the Top 20 of Billboard’s Dance/Electronic chart and earned praise from outlets including The Guardian, Pitchfork, NPR Music, Entertainment Weekly (‘Roosevelt is “Breaking Big”’), The Wall Street Journal, Stereogum, Paste, DJ Mag, The Independent, and more, the 27-year-old producer and songwriter became an in-demand remixer (CHVRCHES, Rhye, and Glass Animals, to name a few) while maintaining a relentless touring schedule (his first ever headlining U.S. tour included multiple sold-out dates and a performance at NYC’s Governors Ball Music Festival).

On Young Romance, Lauber expresses escapism and wistfulness in equal measure, documenting his own artistic transitions and personal experiences along the way. “I ended up processing a lot of emotions that I felt during my youth,” he says. “Faded relationships that haunted me for years, being on the road for what seemed like forever, and the constant search of a place to call home.” It was written and finished in 6 months and features his first collaboration with Washed Out (“Forgive”). Lauber locked himself up with a pile of vintage synthesizers in his newly built studio in his hometown, where he wrote the record, and later traveled to Los Angeles, where he completed it. Once again working with Chris Coady (Beach House, Grizzly Bear, Future Islands), who mixed the record at the legendary Sunset Sound studios, Young Romance propels Roosevelt into unchartered territory. Now less reliant on a four-to-the-floor kick drum as a rhythmic backbone, this sophomore record sees him embrace grooves of all shapes and sizes, and the results are thrilling.
