AccuRadio Song Of The Day-Lukas Graham

Artist:Lukas Graham
Song:7 Years
Album:Lukas Graham

Lukas Graham made a big splash with their US debut album and the chart topping single 7 Years. They are nominated for three Grammys. They are from Copenhagen, Denmark. Lead singer Lukas Forchhammer was a child actor and singer. He formed Lukas Graham in 2011 with Morten Ristorp on piano, Magnus Larsson on bass and Mark Falgren on drums. They posted a couple of videos to Facebook and that got them a deal with Copenhagen Records. Their 2012 debut album Lukas Graham was released only in Europe. It did very well and Warner Bros. signed them for the US. They released their 2015 CD Lukas Graham (known as the blue album) in Europe. Warner Bros. released it in Apr. 2016 with a new cover. The single 7 Years topped the charts across Europe and it reached #2 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song is autobiographical. Forchhammer wrote it after his father died. The album has been certified Gold. 7 Years has been nominated for three Grammys including Record of the Year and Song of the Year. They are currently touring the US and they have appeared on all the talk shows, most recently Good Morning America. They also appeared on the 2017 Rockin' New Year's Eve. Their music is radio friendly pop soul and of course we'll see if Lukas Graham has legs when they record their next album. Here's the video for 7 Years by Lukas Graham.
