Local Natives New Album 'Sunlit Youth' Out September 9; World Tour Announced For Fall 2016

New Track "Villainy" Streaming Now

Local Natives today announce the release of their third album Sunlit Youth, out September 9 on Loma Vista Recordings / Infectious Music. The LA five-piece broke a year of silence with a pop up show in San Francisco in April, and the surprise release of their first new track in three years, "Past Lives". Following further west coast pop up shows in San Diego and the band's hometown of Los Angeles ("people lost their shit" - VICE), Local Natives today announce a full world tour slated for this Fall.

Local Natives premiered the album's opening track, "Villainy," as a World Record on Zane Lowe's Beats1 show yesterday and today showcase a visual for the song that is as much a love letter to their hometown as it is an exuberant summation of feeling within the song. The clip was directed by Andrew Droz Palermo with art direction from Brian Roettinger.

"A lot of the excitement in making this new album came from discovering how to make songs in different ways," 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."
