Three is the third studio album by American electronic rock duo Phantogram, released October 7, 2016 by Republic Records. [4] [5] It was produced by band members Josh Carter and Sarah Barthel, along with Ricky Reed, John Hill, and Dan Wilson. The album was preceded by the June 2016 release of the single "You Don't Get Me High Anymore". [6]



In the nine years until Three's release, Phantogram, a duo of Josh Carter and Sarah Barthel, transformed from an indie trip hop act to a Republic Records-signed pop act, collaborating with the likes of Miley Cyrus, Skrillex and Big Boi. [3] In January 2016, Barthel's older sister committed suicide. [3]

"You Don't Get Me High Anymore" samples the drum break from "Hook And Sling (Part I)," a 1969 track by Eddie Bo that he wrote with Alfred Scramuzza and so this is why Bo (under his real name, Edwin Bocage) and Scramuzza have writers credits on the song. [7]


The album debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard Top Album Sales chart and No. 9 on the Billboard 200. It included the single "You Don't Get Me High Anymore", produced by Josh Carter and Reed. A series of promotional remixes of the lead single by How to Dress Well, A-Trak, Miami Horror, Attlas, and The Range were released following the album. [8]
