Danish band Lukas Graham has a smash hit on its hands with "7 Years," and now their U.S. debut album has arrived in stores.  Not only is the track listing different from their overseas debut, but the artwork is different too -- because apparently, an image of a topless woman just wasn't going to fly in America.
