Lord Huron has always made cinematic music – really, the band's songs have been featured in more commercials, TV shows and movies than you can count. But with its new album, Long Lost, Lord Huron has created a fictional world rich with characters, backstories, even a mythical radio station, and providing the soundtrack. In this session, frontman Ben Schneider joins me to take us there and to talk about what inspired it. Plus, hear the full band in a performance recorded in front of a live (virtual) audience.
