Local Natives will release new album ‘Sunlit Youth’ this September

They're going on a massive tour too.
Local Natives third album is coming this September.

Titled ‘Sunlit Youth’, the full-length will be released on September 9th via Infectious Music / Loma Vista Recordings.

“A lot of the excitement in making this new album came from discovering how to make songs in different ways,” the band’s Ryan Hahn says. “You start thinking, ‘What do I want to hear?’ Forget about what we’ve done and what people expect. This is a song that I would want to hear. Lyrically, Villainy is about realising that you have the ability to change your situation, that you can start again everyday. We applied that to how we made music this time around. We wanted all the new songs to have a different energy, to challenge ourselves to do something different each time.”

The band have already debuted two tracks from the record, ‘Past Lives’ and opener ‘Villainy’. The tracklisting reads:

1. Villainy

2. Past Lives

3. Dark Days

4. Fountain Of Youth

5. Masters

6. Jellyfish

7. Coins

8. Mother Emanuel

9. Ellie Alice
