Youth Lagoon released "The Knower" as a 7" vinyl release last week, and the track hit the digital world today. It's more powerful than past Youth Lagoon releases, riding a firm beat with the rapid hi-hats that are commonplace in contemporary pop and hip-hop production. A raucous horn section also makes an appearance. The vocals are characteristically fragile: Everybody likes to think that their luck will change/ when there's no such thing.
Read Youth Lagoon's FADER interview, and look for his third album, Savage Hills Ballroom, on September 25.
