By Andrew Hamp and Jason Lipshutz.Clearly, the first album in ten years is a big deal to many sectors of the music industry, as a number of high-power music execs made the trip to the Mondrian SoHo’s Soaked penthouse bar (a day before the new venue opened to the public, no less) on a Wednesday night (July 11) to hear the alt-rock veterans’ forthcoming studio set, “North,” which is due out Sept. 4.
Atlantic Chairman/COO Julie Greenwaldplayed emcee, raising a toast to the band’s fourth album and her first since she joined Atlantic after a long tenure at Def Jam. Greenwald called the album, “one of the greatest albums you are going to hear this year.”
