During the writing process of their latest album Cleopatra, The Lumineers listen to a massive tone of music and take inspiration from a lot of artists. To let their followers know their influences, the band shared a playlist of songs on their social media.
With the title “The Lumineers Inspiration”, the list covers an extensive amount of genders and styles, from classic rock to electronics, from soul to chamber music. A total of 41 songs from the likes of The Rolling Stones of Beastie Boys, Wilco or Ryan Adams. Exceptionally they also include two compositions of their own: “Boots of Spanish Leather” and “Blue Christmas”, the latter recently added for the holiday season.
