Fun. is known for topping the charts with their hit singles "We Are Young" and "Carry On," but now, Andrew Dost is moving in a different direction: working with MTV on their latest scripted television show Faking It.
Dost had a conversation with MTV's director of music Ernesto Elias about working with MTV in a scoring capacity. Schedule-wise, working with MTV worked out well for Dost. Fun. is currently on a hiatus from touring and recording, Billboard reports.
Dost spoke to Billboard about his upcoming project and what attracted him to working on Faking It, "[This] is my career goal, my biggest ambition. I loved the show and after meeting the creator (Carter Covington, a co-executive producer on Hart of Dixie) and the producers, it seemed like the perfect project," said Dost.
The Fun. member ended up scoring all eight episodes of Faking It so far.
Nate Ruess recently spoke about Fun. returning to the studio and working on a new album, to Rolling Stone.
"It's moving. There's an apprehension at first, because I don't want this thing to move too fast, because I want to be able to enjoy being at home. And with this album – and after being on the road for a few years – you can't help but think of how each song is gonna fit. You start thinking about what you're gonna want to play, and what you're gonna want to say," said Ruess.
