Youth Lagoon Releases Video for New Song ‘The Sling’

    Trevor Powers has previewed the upcoming Youth Lagoon album with a new single, ‘The Sling’, which follows February’s ‘Idaho Alien’. Check it out via the accompanying video below.

    Speaking about the track, Powers said in a press release: “For years, I’ve been chasing a phantom. This feeling of an unseen world deep inside of me. It’s why I make music. I have a compulsion to understand myself. Or learn to love myself. Maybe that’s the same thing. I’ve been asked by multiple people to describe ‘The Sling’ — where does it come from? What does it mean? Every time I start an explanation, I contradict myself. I’d consider it a song about time. And love. That I can say with confidence. I wrote it one night I felt trapped. The next morning I was free.”

    Heaven Is a Junkyard, Youth Lagoon’s first LP since 2015’s Savage Hills Ballroom, is due out June 9 on Fat Possum.
