Love Letters LP Out on March 11th

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 03/04/14 -- Metronomy are releasing their much anticipated new album Love Letters on March 11th via Because Music / Elektra Records. Today, music fans can stream the entire album exclusively on iTunes (iTunes.com/Metronomy) and iTunes Radio via First Play (iTunesRadio.com/Metronomy).

The first two singles from the band's career defining new album Love Letters -- "I'm Aquarius" & "Love Letters" -- have leapt to success at radio around the globe and are providing the Mercury Music Prize-nominated four-piece with their most anticipated album release to date. Led by singer/songwriter/producer Joseph Mount, Metronomy make modern, precise and creative pop music.

Love Letters is Joseph Mount's masterpiece. Not losing any of the glowing warmth and ear worm melodies that makes Metronomy's sound so distinct, Love Letters is more developed, further evolved -- Joe Mount excels in his lyrics and song writing delivering what sounds like a truly classic record. Metronomy will embark on a North American tour this May. All North American tour dates are below.

Preorder Love Letters via iTunes: (iTunes.com/Metronomy).

Some early praise for METRONOMY's LOVE LETTERS:

"...there's no one making such gorgeously melodic and wide-reaching electronic pop music quite like (Joe Mount)...Love Letters is surely his masterpiece, a potent mix of analogue synths, raw beats, folk influences and a McCartney-esque talent for tunes." - Mix Mag (9/10)

"Metronomy is effortlessly unconcerned and it's why they're different. They're a hard-working little boat from a seaside town going on a journey through an ocean of fakers, copycats, and naysayers. Insular yet inviting, experimental yet poppy, intense no previous, retro yet current, lovelorn and sexed......With every album, (Mount)'s created a distinct and vivid sonic world all of its own, set adrift from pop culture and prevailing trends." - NME

"Love Letters still sounds unquestionably like Metronomy -- with the eclectic mixture of electronica, off kilter rythyms and Mout's distinctive vocals all still present..these touches ensure that it rarely feels dour...remaining immensely listenable, infectiously catchy and at times downright fun... Pushing away the froth and frivolity, they leave a darker, more satisfying, and ultimately superior record in their wake." - Under The Radar (8.5/10)

"Joe Mount blends Abba voices and Dexy's hooks till the Seventies bleed into the Eighties." - Rolling Stone
