The trio began a series of collaborations in their parents’ living room and soon introduced their Queen and ELO-influenced big pop sound in 2009 with the debut album Aim and Ignite. In 2012, Fun.returned with its sophomore effort, Some Nights.

The album was produced by Jeff Bhasker, who worked on Kanye West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. The album drew much inspiration from hip-hop, while staying true to their roots and blowing their sound up to impressively large proportions. The record’s first single, “We Are Young,” featured vocals by Janelle Monáe and reached number three on the Billboard Hot 100.
