Mandolin Orange Release Spotify Singles After 75M+ Streams

Mandolin Orange Release Spotify Singles After 75M+ Streams

Following the release of 2016's breakout LP, 'Blindfaller,' Mandolin Orange have rapidly grown from North Carolinian upstarts into under-sung heroes, selling out tours across the world, serenading the legendary stages of Red Rocks, Bonnaroo, Newport Folk, and the Ryman, and amassing praise from NPR Music, Paste, Vox and more. Today, they release their Spotify Singles, a surprise gift to the fans who have helped the duo earn over 75 million streams.

Listen to the exclusive, live renditions of "Echo" backed with "Amsterdam" here (session photos below):

Inspired by downtown Chapel Hill's high-rise influx and its impending deforestation, 'Blindfaller' standout "Echo" is a poignant match of Mandolin Orange's socially conscious lyricism and "low-key instrumental heroics" (Vox). Their "angelic harmonies" (NPR Music) are on full-display in "Amsterdam," however, offering a rich and raw re-imagining of the Gregory Alan Isakov hit.

Led by multi-instrumentalists and singers Andrew Marlin and Emily Frantz, Mandolin Orange fuse windswept romanticism with astute social critique. Mandolin Orange begin an expansive spring/summer tour this month, including an already sold-out Red Rocks date with the Avett Brothers in June, a headlining return to the 3000-cap North Carolina Museum of Art, and appearances at MerleFest, DelFest, Winnipeg Folk Festival, Kate Wolf Music Festival, and more. Most headlining dates have sold-out already -- full tour below.
