Nashville’s own alt-rock-five-piece band Moon Taxi announce the details of their highly anticipated fifth studio album, Let The Record Play, to be released on January 19, 2018 via RCA Records.

Let The Record Play features 10 tracks – including their global streaming hit ‘Two High,’ which is currently #1 at Triple A Radio, being played on Sirius XM’s The Spectrum, Alt Nation and Jam On, and has garnered over 64 million streams on Spotify alone. 

Let The Record Play is a triumphant moment of rock-pop exploration that proves that Moon Taxi is a rare band that can address the temperature of our turbulent times while also providing the euphoric musical escapism we so badly need. Produced and mixed by Spencer Thomson (the band’s guitarist), Let The Record Play is a document of one of the most creative bands to emerge from Nashville's immensely fertile landscape – and one that has been thriving on the festival scene for years, bringing their electric performances to Coachella, Austin City Limits, Bonnaroo and beyond. Beloved enough in their hometown to sell out two nights at the famed Ryman Auditorium this past October, this LP – and their new relationship with RCA – is certain to catapult them even higher.  

Following the lead of the spirit of ‘Two High,’ Moon Taxi sought to make a record that lends itself as easily to the home speakers as it does to live shows, blending the best of pop – great melodies, smart hooks – with lyrics that conjure stories and inspire real thoughtfulness. Bursting with emotion and endlessly playful approaches to instrumentation and orchestration, Let The Record Play, chosen for a track of the same name, melds so many multifaceted worlds: it's gritty, edgy, tropical and restlessly hard-rocking all at once. And under Moon Taxi's careful hand, it all feels supremely natural.

"If there's one thing we want when people hear this record or see our shows," says frontman Trevor Terndrup, "it's to leave elated."

Trevor Terndrup (vocals, guitarist), Spencer Thomson (guitarist and producer), Wes Bailey (keyboardist), Tommy Putnam (bassist) and Tyler Ritter(drummer) also just completed the North American leg of the “Put ‘Em Up” tour. The band is currently touring in Europe before ending the year with select shows in the U.S.
