Thenewno2 have a busy summer ahead of them. On July 31st, the L.A.-based alternative act, led by Beatles heir Dhani Harrison, will release their second album, thefearofmissingout, via H.O.T. Records Ltd. The following week, the band will take the stage at Lollapalooza 2012 with a full tour to follow shortly.
According to Harrison, the song “Make It Home” grew from a universal need. “At the end of the day, whatever you do of a night time, it’s always important to make it home, isn’t it? Making it home is equally important to all of us. Dynamically this track went through a lot of changes, but always meant the same thing.”
The follow-up to 2009’s You Are Here will offer a revolving door of guest vocalists, including RZA, the Black Knights and Harrison’s Fistful of Mercy bandmate Ben Harper. “Make It Home,” an early cut from the album, hints at the band’s newfound interest in programming and sampled sounds without sacrificing melodic smarts.
