Local Natives have officially announced their new album, Sunlit Youth, and shared a lyric video for single "Villainy." They have also announced some tour dates. Sunlit Youth is due out September 9 via Loma Vista and Infectious Music. Below are the lyric video, tracklist, tour dates, and album cover.

It's been three years since Local Natives released their last album, 2013's sophomore effort Hummingbird. But back in April the Los Angeles band shared a brand new song, the driving, anthemic, and festival-ready "Past Lives." Yesterday, another new song, "Villainy," was premiered by Zane Lowe on his Beats 1 radio show on Apple Music.

Local Natives' Ryan Hahn commented on the album in a press release: "A lot of the excitement in making this new album came from discovering how to make songs in different ways. You start thinking, 'What do I want to hear?' Forget about what we've done and what people expect. This is a song that I would want to hear. Lyrically, 'Villainy' is about realizing that you have the ability to change your situation, that you can start again everyday. We applied that to how we made music this time around. We wanted all the new songs to have a different energy, to challenge ourselves to do something different each time."
