RIP Alton Sterling and Philando Castile.

Local Natives have released their new single 'Fountain Of Youth,' from their upcoming third album Sunlit Youth, out September 9 on Infectious Music / Loma Vista Recordings. "In a time of cynicism dressed as realism, when it feels like the world might be falling apart around us, I believe there is reason to be hopeful, optimistic, and idealistic," they said in a statement. "Socially, politically and personally, I've felt many defeats, but come back to the realisation that this is our world to make. Consider the many victories, small and large, that have been going on around us these last couple of years. There's a lot left to do, but we should feel hopeful that we are the ones who can do it, and we can do whatever we want."
