Their debut hasn't even dropped yet, but American Authors sent their new single to No. 23 on the Billboard Hot 100. Obviously, people really like "Best Day of My Life" (listen below). The Brooklyn quartet's uplifting anthem has featured in...take a deep breath...Lowe's heartwarming Super Bowl commercial, a trailer for Vince Vaughn's Delivery Man, an MLB Fan Cave promo and it's in the opening sequence for ESPN's World Series of Poker.
Spinning off of the big-time love, the band's debut full length, Oh, What a Life, drops March 4 and we're showing our excitement by having the guys take over Fuse's channel: We'll be playing videos and exclusive interviews with the Brooklyn boys all this week.
"The record's got really a lot of everything," says lead singer Zac Barnett, who recently rocked our Artist or Author quiz. "There are upbeat songs like 'Best Day of My Life' and 'Believer' to more serious songs with influences from classic rock and traditional Irish folk music to modern synths and hip hop drum grooves. We're really excited to get it out there. The songs mean a lot to us." (We're still jamming to the banjo-led "Trouble.")
In the interview above, find out how the quartet dropped out of school together, got signed by a major record label and what their future touring plans are. Tune in to Fuse all week to see even more AA.
