Using a cluster extension of the dynamical mean-field theory, we show that strongly correlated metals subject to Hund's physics exhibit significant electronic structure modulations above magnetic transition temperatures. In particular, in a ferromagnet having a large local moment due to Hund's coupling (Hund's ferromagnet), the Fermi surface expands even above the Curie temperature (TC) as if a spin polarization occurred. Behind this phenomenon, effective "Hund's physics"works in momentum space, originating from ferromagnetic fluctuations in the strong-coupling regime. The resulting significantly momentum-dependent (spatially nonlocal) electron correlations induce an electronic structure reconstruction involving a Fermi surface volume change and a redistribution of the momentum-space occupation. Our finding will give a deeper insight into the physics of Hund's ferromagnets above TC.
