Fueled By Ramen-signed crew fun. are currently exploding across the internet with their new single "We Are Young" thanks to a sound that's a delicious, majestic mix of post-MCR grandeur, Queen harmonies, and Cobra Starship's ear for fearless genre-hopping. This heart-tuggin' acoustic version of "We Are Young" — performed with our fave space case Janelle Monáe, — makes the soft side of this decadent band even softer. Director Travis Satten filmed it in front of a bank vault... presumably because they've stolen our hearts (we admit it: they have).

A vinyl version of the "We Are Young" single is due November 28 and their sophomore album, Some Nights arrives on February 21, 2012.
