Colorado folk-rock band the Lumineers have announced their second album, Cleopatra. The LP, the follow-up for their Grammy-nominated 2013 self-titled album, is going to be released on April 8th. The Lumineers also previewed the forthcoming Cleopatra because of their first new song in four years, Ophelia sheet music .

"It's a heavier record," frontman Wesley Schultz told Entertainment Weekly about Cleopatra. "A great deal of the records that I spent my childhood years on were about being transitory; never being stuck. This lifestyle forces you to crazy."

On Ophelia the darker tone from the Lumineers tunes can be heard from the familiar stomps, claps and harmonies that made their more whimsical "Ho Hey" a success. "'Ophelia' is usually a vague mention of the people falling in love with fame," Schultz told EW. "That spotlight can appear like an endless buffet, truly, you're just shiny, bright and not used to people to get a quick moment — and then you develop the rest of your lifestyle to live."

Along using the single and album announcement, the Lumineers also revealed Cleopatra's track list plus the dates for just a world tour in support from the LP. Less than a week as soon as the album's release, the group will get rid of their international trek in Bristol, UK and stay in Europe through mid-May. The folk band is going to be in North America in the end of May through mid-June before playing a couple of dates in Italy in July.
