GROUPLOVE SHARES NEW SINGLE “FRANCINE”
ALBUM I WANT IT ALL RIGHT NOW
OUT JULY 7TH
Catch them on tour with P!NK this summer
Coming off a monumental performance at Shaky Knees Festival over the weekend, indie rock favorites GROUPLOVE have released their newest single “Francine,” from their forthcoming album I Want It All Right Now due out July 7th on Glassnote Records. The single is shared alongside a video that continues the narrative from the double-single “Hello” / “All” released earlier this year. “Hello” has been widely received and rapidly climbing the alternative and adult alternative radio charts.
To celebrate their upcoming album release, GROUPLOVE announced two shows in Atlanta, The Earl on July 6th (SOLD OUT) and headlining the Tabernacle on July 7th with Lunar Vacation supporting. They have also announced a free fan event at Drugstore Gallery in Atlanta on July 8th which will showcase various pieces of art created for the album by lead singer Hannah Hooper, whose artwork has been featured on previous album covers. The gallery will showcase the emotional journey Hooper took during the making of this record, including the piece that ultimately became the album artwork.
The video for “Francine” was directed by Isaac Deitz, who also directed the videos for “Hello” / ”All”. The band takes us on an adventure exploring various Atlanta attractions including Piedmont Park, Georgia Aquarium, Central Atlanta Props and on a Mulligan Swing at a carnival.
On how “Francine” came to be, GROUPLOVE shares, “‘Francine’ is a feel-good summer jam…is it summer yet? It started as a vibey drum loop that Ben, our drummer, came up with and transformed into what it is now. Everything in life is so temporary, so go out and be whoever you are right now. Live in the moment and while you’re at it, pick flowers with Francine if you’re lucky enough to know her.”
Built on a raw but incandescent sound vocalist/keyboardist Hannah Hooper refers to as “resistance pop,” I Want It All Right Now explores that paradox with equal parts tenderness, curiosity, and exacting self-revelation—ultimately arriving at a body of work that leaves the listener newly awakened to the wisdom of their own intuition. Produced by Grammy-winning producer John Congleton (Death Cab For Cutie, Wallows, St Vincent), GROUPLOVE’s sixth LP and first release since signing to Glassnote Records, I Want It All Right Now emerged from a period of intense transformation for Hannah Hooper and Christian Zucconi, a married couple who are principal songwriters and lead vocalists for the band.
GROUPLOVE blends a quirky, ’90s-style indie rock sensibility with a spirited, arena-ready roar. A bold leap forward for the band—whose lineup also includes bassist Daniel Gleason, guitarist Andrew Wessen, and drummer Ben Homola—I Want It All Right Now fully harnesses the ecstatic energy of their live show while amplifying the unabashedly playful spirit the band has embodied since their 2011 debut Never Trust a Happy Song, which spawned the number one Billboard Alternative Songs Chart hit “Tongue Tied.” They have continued to straddle mainstream and indie success, playing festivals around the globe and remaining Top 20 Billboard Alternative chart regulars with albums like 2013’s Spreading Rumours and 2020’s Healer. In 2021, GROUPLOVE returned with their surprise fifth album, This Is This.
This summer, the band will embark on a North American stadium/arena tour with pop superstar P!NK.
