Perennial hitmakers and three-time Grammy award winners, Train have released their new single, “Angel In Blue Jeans”. This initial offering is from their upcoming 7th studio effort, Bulletproof Picasso, which is scheduled to be released on September 16th.
Audiences have come to expect a melodic and visceral tour de force from Train, with the band possessing one of the more potent, radio-embedded repertoires. The acclaimed group has sold more than ten million albums worldwide, thirty million tracks worldwide, with numerous platinum/gold citations on their mantle, 3 Grammy Awards, 2 Billboard Music Awards and dozens of other honors and nominations.
Their gift for delivering memorable songs with an edgy refinement has seen them achieve unprecedented radio and social media traction, with the eight-time Grammy nominees heralded as a standard bearer of riveting, roots-based pop around the world. Their most recent album, 2012’s California 37 spawned the hit “Drive By,” among other songs, a multi-platinum single that reached the Top Ten in 13 countries, adding to the prolific Train set-list which already includes multiple signature smashes such as their Grammy winning classic “Drops Of Jupiter (Tell Me),” the chart-topping “Meet Virginia,” and “Calling All Angels.” The band snagged another Grammy in 2011 for their global smash “Hey Soul Sister,” (the #1 hit and biggest selling single of 2010) from their 2009 multi-platinum album, Save Me, San Francisco. In 2011, Train launched the Save Me, San Francisco Wine Co. and Save Me, San Francisco Chocolate Co, which benefit Family House, a Bay Area nonprofit providing temporary housing to the families of seriously ill children being treated at University of California San Francisco Benioff Children's Hospital.
