Eli Young Band recently released their new album “Fingerprints” and it sounds like the band's long-time fans will be happy with what they hear.
“It was important to us with this album that we really wanted to go into the studio and make an album that felt 100 percent like Eli Young Band," singer Mike Eli tells “Rolling Stone.” "Our goal with this record was to listen to the fans, and the fans wanted us to bring in some songs that felt like old-school Eli Young Band."
Their last release, the 2015 EP “Turn It On” was considered a bit too pop for some fans, especially after they collaborated with Andy Grammer on “Honey I’m Good,” so they wanted to make sure their new release didn’t go that way again. And with the album jumping to number one on the iTunes country chart after its release, it looks like they may have done something right.
“We feel pretty good about where are," Mike says. "Our goal is to just make the best music Eli Young Band can make and hope our fans enjoy it, whether we make another Number One record or not."
