Foster the People has released three new tracks from its forthcoming third album, including lead single “Doing It For The Money” “Pay the Man” and “SHC.”

All will be featured on the new album, due out this summer via Columbia Records. Fans can purchase and stream all three songs as a bundle, entitled III, HERE.

“One of my favorite things about music is that it's unifying,” says Mark Foster. “We wrote these songs to reflect joy in a time where people have needed it more than ever and we thought it was a good time to share them with you.”

The band recently announced a string of U.S. headline tour dates for the spring and summer, where they will give fans a taste of what’s to come on the new album. The tour will kick off on May 26 in San Diego, CA and make stops in cities including Dallas, Pittsburgh and Nashville before wrapping in Memphis, TN on August 1 – see full list of tour dates below.
