The eleven tracks on Alone Together highlight Leagues’ passion for creating their own particular brand of dance pop that aims to appeal to the masses. The band first set about making what is now Alone Together not long after their debut, You Belong Here, was out in the world. They completed the album in late 2014 but with a sinking feeling that it wasn’t the right one. “It’s hard to see when you’re in the middle of that process,” says Cockrell, “but I think we both had this growing feeling that we weren’t saying everything we wanted to say and weren’t pushing each musically to do all we could do. So we had to wipe the slate clean and start over.” Wholly produced by Lutito, and comprising both wholly reworked songs from the first pass as well all new ones. The songs themselves are among Cockrell’s best, and made all the more dynamic by programming envelope constantly being pushed by Lutito’s production.
Today Leagues share a new single, “Lipstick Coffee,” off their forthcoming new album Alone Together. The album will be released on September 9 via Dualtone and marksLeagues’ first album for the label. The band Nashville, TN based duo is lead vocalist and songwriter Thad Cockrell and producer/programmer/drummerJeremy Lutito. Earlier this Spring they revealed “Dance With Me”.
