Youth Lagoon, aka Trevor Powers, has dropped the first cut off his forthcoming sophomore album, Wondrous Bughouse, due out March 5th via Fat Possum. Titled “Dropla”, the six-minute spectral excursion picks up where 2011’s The Year of Hibernation left off, instilling enough atmosphere and emotion to make anyone feel like they’re living out the closing scenes of some hard-hitting drama. “You’ll never die, you’ll never die, you’ll never die,” Powers pleads repeatedly, and so will you. Stream below.
It’s a good year for Powers. Not only will he be opening for The National at their awe-inspiring headlining gig at Brooklyn’s Barclays Arena, but he’ll also be hitting the road for a slew of winter dates, too. Consult the full itinerary yonder.
