Sacred Hearts Club is the third studio album by American indie pop band Foster the People, released on July 21, 2017, through Columbia Records. The album was preceded by the extended play III, which is composed of three tracks from the album. Departing from the organic, more acoustic sound of their previous album, it draws upon soul, dance, and electronic genres while maintaining their signature indie pop sound. The lyrics address themes of love, politics, fame and youth. Similar to their previous albums, the lyrics are often at odds with the upbeat musical production. The album received primarily mixed reviews upon release.
