It’s been a month since Local Natives announced a new album, Sunlit Youth, a world tour, and released the first taste of said album with “Villainy.” Today the LA band released another track off the upcoming album, this one entitled “Fountain of Youth.” Annie Mac premiered the track earlier today over at BBC Radio 1.
Just like “Villainy,” “Fountain of Youth” is another fantastic single. As the title indicates, the song is all about the power of youth in the world, and the responsibility that comes with that. “And if we don’t change, then who’ll change?” lead singer Taylor Rice asks of the listener. With a stirring instrumental coupled with that heartfelt message, Local Natives’ newest song is another indicator that Sunlit Youth is going to be a solid album.
Listen to “Fountain of Youth” below. Sunlit Youth is out on September 9, and you can pre-order it through the band’s website.
