Frontman Kevin Griffin tells Billboard about the prank-filled recording sessions for their new album.
Better Than Ezra, the New Orleans-based rock trio behind such '90s hits as “Good” and “Desperately Wanting,” are back with a new studio album, and it's streaming exclusively on Billboard ahead of its Sept. 9 release.
All Together Now (via The End Records) was produced by Grammy-nominated mixer/producer Tony Hoffer (Fitz and the Tantrums, M83, Beck, Silversun Pickups), who got the trio rocking out together throughout the recording process.
“We hadn't actually all gotten in one room to record in such a long time,” admits frontman Kevin Griffin. “These days with digital recording, Pro Tools etc., you can really put an album together piecemeal… Tony Hoffer has a magical room in Highland Park, CA, and we just set up shop there. It's no coincidence that the record has a vibrancy that I think our last album lacked.”
