Fresh off their first live performance in over a year, in which they debuted five new songs, Local Natives have now announced details of their sophomore album. The follow-up to 2010’s acclaimed Gorilla Mannor, Hummingbird will arrive on January 29th via Frenckiss/Infectious. All five of the songs performed last night will appear on the album, including the lead single, “Breakers”.

According to a press release, “the band did their initial tracking in Montreal, and then decamped to Brooklyn, enlisting as co-producer The National’s Aaron Dessner, who they had recently befriended while touring together. It was the first time they had ever recorded outside their native California, and relocating became the physical manifestation of working beyond what was familiar for them.”

In support of the release, the band has mapped out an extensive tour, including a North American leg that leaves them in the West coast right around Coachella.

Check out a studio version of “Breakers”, the album’s tracklist, and the band’s full tour schedule below.
