Looks like we won't have to wait until February after all to hear what the Fray has in store next. The band is slated to debut "You Found Me," the first single from its forthcoming self-titled album, next week. Beginning at 10 p.m. on Thursday, November 20, fans can listen to a stream the new song on the act's website. Earlier that same night, a snippet of the song will be featured in a new Lost promo, which intermingles live footage of the Fray with exclusive scenes from the ABC serial drama's new season. And then, as we reported last week, the group is due on the American Music Awards on Sunday, where the Fray will perform the song live for the first time on broadcast television.
Fans who pre-order the deluxe version of The Fray this Thursday evening will also receive a bonus live album that will be recorded during a club tour after the first of the year. In addition to receiving the live digital album, those who purchase the release in advance will also have the opportunity to purchase tickets to the club shows listed below, two days in advance of the general public, beginning on Wednesday, December 3. -- Dave Herrera
