"Some Nights" was released as the album's second single in June 2012, peaking at number three on the Hot 100 chart and becoming Fun's second Top 10 single, as well as the band's second song to reach platinum status in the United States.
On February 10, 2013, Fun won the Grammy Award for Best New Artist and the Grammy Award for Song of the Year for "We Are Young". Additionally, Fun was a nominee for four other Grammy Awards: Record of the Year and Best Pop Duo or Group Performance along with Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album.

Andrew Allen scored his first hit in 2009, when “I Wanna Be Your Christmas” cracked the Top Ten in his native Canada. Although raised in British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley, his music evoked memories of a warmer place, with artists like Jason Mraz and Jack Johnson serving as touchstones for his acoustic pop/rock. Allen continued building an international profile in 2010, eventually signing a contract with Epic after spending much of the year on the road.
He was the feature performer for the Sochi 2014 hand off finale on the internationally broadcast Closing Ceremony of the 2010 Paralympic Winter Games held at Whistler, British Columbia.
In 2011, his single "Loving You Tonight" was featured on the soundtrack of Abduction starring Taylor Lautner.
They practice what they preach; everything is collaborative. Their music draws from a desire to grow together and a sense of security within the group. Like siblings, they fight, make up, and in the end, emerge stronger.
Their collective approach might draw comparisons to Arcade Fire or Broken Social Scene, but their sound finds its place somewhere between the folk-tinged rock n’ roll of Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros and the youthful upbeat pop of Cults, siphoning the energy of pop punk on a caffeine drip. For them, it starts with having a message and trying to say it in the most uplifting way, inspired equally by the magnetism and energy of San Francisco, as they are by the solitude and serenity of the Big Sur coast.
