"... (the title track) cements their theme of adventures, with lyrics laden with road trip imagery, bubbling over with ebullience." - Billboard What We Live For is the second release from Brooklyn indie pop-rockers American Authors, the follow-up to 2014's very successful debut Oh, What A Life. This album was preceded by two singles in 2015 and two more in 2016, three of which became top 40 adult radio and rock hits. Producers and co-writers Aaron Accetta and Shep Goodman reprise their roles from the band's first album here. "... we tried to take a lot of the stuff that our fans like and love about us from Oh, What A Life and take that to the next level as far as sounds go ... (we) brought back some of the old instruments like mandolin and banjo, but also experimented with a lot of different sounds like vocal samples. We brought back a lot of piano (and) bigger harmonies." - Zac Barnett, lead singer

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
