Stream Hospitality's Trouble now at NPR Music

Stream Hospitality's Trouble now at NPR Music

Hospitality will release their sophomore album Trouble next week, but listen to the full album now at NPR Music.

NPR Music's Will Hermes writes of Trouble, "Papini doesn't front on the fact that love's bliss is largely about the trusting swoon, the letting go. 'My lock and door, left open,' she sings in 'Sunship,' the first of two acoustic-guitar-centered tracks that close the record. It recalls the way Syd Barrett combined joyous whimsy with the scariness of vulnerability. It's about love as divine madness, and it's a beauty."

The band will begin their US tour next week with a very special show at WNYC's Green Space to open the Ecstatic Music Festival. Billed as "Hospitality, Nathan Michel and Face the Music", the performance will feature an original composition by Hospitality multi-instrumentalist Nathan Michel written for string quartet Face the Music as well as string arrangements of Hospitality songs and a stripped-down set by the Hospitality band. 

Also, listen to a preview of their touring live show on WNYC's Soundcheck on Wednesday, January 29.

A full list of tour dates is below, and Trouble is available for pre-order on CD and LP with exclusive t-shirt bundle now in the Merge store.
