Since Young the Giant’s self-titled debut album came out in 2010, the band has been touring the world and blowing up the airwaves with soaring singles like “Apartment” and “Cough Syrup.”
But in early 2013, the band decamped to Palos Verdes, Calif., to begin work on their highly-anticipated follow-up album.
With the help of producer Justin Meldal-Johnsen, Young the Giant released Mind Over Matter in January, a collection of 13 tracks that mark the band’s next step. While still staying true to their indie roots, Mind Over Matter definitely cranks everything up a few notches.
Young the Giant graciously welcomed Fender.com into their home studio for a behind-the-scenes look at how everything came together.
