The Luyas New Album Now Available for Pre-Order. Download the Title Track “Too Beautiful To Work.”


The Luyas new album Too Beautiful To Work comes out Feb. 22, but you can pre-order the album today and receive an instant mp3 download of the full record along with a physical CD or LP copy by street date. Just go HERE to place your order.

In anticipation of the new release we are happy to share a new MP3 for the album’s title track. The song “Too Beautiful To Work” encapsulates everything we love about the Luyas in just under four minutes. It’s a song worth naming an album after, it’s futuristic pop filtered through a blown-out vintage tube amp. Jessie Stein’s elastic wordplay becomes another instrument, dancing atop the rhythmic keyboards and motorik beat. The layers of sound are dense and lush, augmented by the virtuosic violin of sometimes Luya and all the time Arcade Fire member Sarah Neufeld, and swirling sounds of clarinet and saxaphone, courtest of Colin Stetson. It is a song that feels like a mission statement, and we could not imagine the album Too Beautiful To Work opening any other way.
