Since I first interviewed Grouplove in Studio A back in 2011, I've loved this band. They are back and better than ever with a sixth album, I Want It All Right Now.

Their latest songs strive to address the question of why we always want more than we have. Grouplove doesn't claim to have the answer, but they offer a safe and supportive space to think and grow. Their songs are uplifting and powerful — and you'll feel that way when you sing along to them.

Singer and keyboardist Hannah Hooper, singer and guitarist, Christian Zucconi, lead guitarist Andrew Wessen, bassist Daniel Gleason and drummer Ben Homola stopped by Studio A for a three-song set drawn from the new album: "All," "Cheese," and "Hello."

Hannah and Christian, who are also a couple, spoke about how their young daughter helped inspire some of the songs on the new record and how unreal an experience they are having doing stadium shows with P!NK and Brandi Carlile this summer.
