The Right Now are back with their third full-length release, Starlight, due out February 24th. The band took their time with the follow-up to 2012’s Gets Over You because they found that getting the right sound was more important than rushing out the music. While the last album was more about heartbreak and love, the songs on Starlight are of a wider scope, politics and social issues, addiction and recovery.
The Right Now recorded the album at Transient Sound in Chicago from September 2015 to September 2016 with Vijay Tellis-Nayak, spending long hours in the studio, pouring over details and utilizing a wide variety of instruments: strings, flute, keyboards (Wurlitzer, Fender Rhodes), analog synths (Moog Mini Voyager, Teenage Engineering’s OP-1), Hammond Organ, acoustic piano, bass, drums, electric guitar, and horns.
Starlight will be released February 24th and will be available both digitally and physically. The band is excited to be returning to the road and will soon announce a tour to promote Starlight.
