Lukas Graham´s self titled album gets a world wide release

From the free-living enclave of Christiania in Copenhagen, Lukas Graham and his boys — Mark "Lovestick" Falgren on drums, Kasper Daugaard on keys, and Magnus "Magnum" Larsson on bass — crafted a combination of funky pop and R&B stylings, which made them popular in their home country of Denmark. With his soulful delivery and honest lyrics, Graham recounted tales of family strife, poor decisions, and the celebration of life, all inextricably entwined with his years spent in Christiania. The young Graham's musical influences ranged from classical — gained during his childhood experiences with the Copenhagen Boys' Choir — to the Beatles and the Stones, as well as the Prodigy and Dr. Dre, whose Chronic 2001 was one of the most influential albums for Graham. Despite a less-privileged childhood, his parents were strong role models and much of that love was reflected in his heartfelt songs, like "Mama Said" and "Moving Alone." In early 2012, he released his first album, a self-titled effort that included "Drunk in the Morning," which went on to become a hit throughout Europe. Once they received more international exposure, they were signed to Warner Bros. Records in 2013. A second self-titled album — nicknamed the "Blue Album" — was released in late 2015 and featured the international hit "7 Years."
The world wide release of the new album Lukas Graham is available now, featuring the new single Take The World By Storm.
