The heartbreak anthems on their 2018 follow-up Malibu Nights cracked the Billboard Album Chart and connected in a huge way across the globe, with their 2019 collaboration with Lauv, “Mean It,” garnering further attention. Fronted by songwriter, lyricist and producer Paul Klein, LANY has a social media following of 8.2 million people, has sold more than 415,000 tickets worldwide and played sold-out shows from L.A.’s Greek Theatre to London’s Brixton Academy.
