Fun. began in 2008 when Nate Ruess teamed up with Andrew Dost and Jack Antonoff to meld an array of diverse inspirations into their own irresistible and freewheeling pop songcraft. The band drew immediate attention for their contemporary rethinking of classic 70's pop, where ornate arrangements and inspired orchestrations meet present-day rock ‘n’ roll.
“We Are Young” earned a starring role at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards held February 10, 2013 when they took home the “Song Of the Year” award as well as the Grammy for Best New Artist.
Having earned widespread acclaim with their 2009 debut album, Aim And Ignite, fun. decided to raise the stakes with “Some Nights”, their first on Fueled by Ramen, by teaming up with noted producer Jeff Bhasker (Kanye West, Jay-Z, Alicia Keys, Beyonce, Drake).
