Fueled by the ubiquitous stomp-along "Ho Hey," The Lumineers' self-titled 2012 debut album went to No. 2, and "Ho Hey" itself sold more than two million copies. The Lumineers released a follow-up, Cleopatra, last week. In today's session, the band performs some of the new music on stage at World Cafe Live. Wesley Schultz and Jeremiah Fraites discuss their post-"Ho Hey" roller-coaster ride and explain how they rooted themselves in a similar creative pattern to their first album as they worked on the new one.

Hear the complete session above and watch The Lumineers play Cleopatra's title track in the video below.
