Local Natives announce new album ‘Time Will Wait For No One’

The band have also dropped a new single ‘NYE’ - and announced tour dates!

Local Natives have announced the details of their fifth studio album, ‘Time Will Wait For No One’, which will be out 7th June via Loma Vista Recordings. Their new single ‘NYE’ has also been released today.

The band say that the album was made “during a time of metamorphosis for us. Former selves melting away as some of us became fathers, endured periods of isolation, loss, and identity crisis. The highs and lows we were feeling at the same time were so extreme.”

“There was a moment halfway through making the album, we played one of the most emotional concerts of our lives. A sold out show at the Greek Theater in LA, our first performance in almost two years, but we didn’t know how we could move forward. As individuals and as a band, we were on the verge of a collapse. Time flows on uncontrollably and change is relentless, and the people you love are the only constants. Out of that reckoning we dissolved everything down to start again, and had the most prolific period of songwriting in our history. This is the first chapter, Time Will Wait For No One.”

Their latest song ‘NYE’ captures a Local Natives band tradition; when one member gets married, the rest become the wedding band. When guitarist Ryan Hahn got married last year, the rest of the band played a collection of his favourite songs including ‘Someday’ by The Strokes.

“I was so floored watching the guys play this from the audience, something I’d never seen before, that I thought we had to do a fast and wild song, & ‘NYE’ was born,” says Hahn.
