Exclusive Interview: Ben Thornewill of Jukebox The Ghost Chats About Newest Album, “Cheers”
Piano pop trio, Jukebox the Ghost, have released their sixth studio album Cheers today, May 27th. The self-produced album is the result of a three-year songwriting and recording process and the follow-up to the band’s 2018 release Off To The Races featuring the lead single “Everybody’s Lonely” which charted Top 15 at Alternative Radio. On Cheers, Jukebox The Ghost combines their memorable choruses, cheerful melodies, and Freddie Mercury-esque vocals with the hip-hop-influenced energy of Twenty One Pilots, the modern piano balladry of Andrew McMahon, and the joyful energy of Walk The Moon. The album explores getting through hard times but trusting that the chaos and low points can create new opportunities. The end result is catchy and clever pop songs with theatric undertones.
We chatted with Jukebox the Ghost’s pianist and vocalist, Ben Thornewill, about the band’s latest run on tour, and their newest album, available today on all listening platforms. Watch the video in full below!
