Youth Lagoon (aka Trevor Powers) released his third album, Savage Hills Ballroom, back in September via Fat Possum. How he has shared a new non-album track, “I’ve Seen.” It was written after the sessions for Savage Hills Ballroom.

Powers had this to say about the song in a press release: “Throughout the months I worked on Savage Hills Ballroom, I became possessed by a concept. If we had the ability to accept our blemishes, seeing that it’s our fuck ups and flaws that make us distinct & force us to advance as individuals and as a society, we could start understanding each other. The world swims in judgment. It makes us feel good to think someone else is worse than us. We’re born into this mindset and much of it is rooted in self-loathing rather than merely learning from our weaknesses. We bury who we really are because we don’t think anyone will accept us. SHB is grounded in satire. It is a microcosm of a perfect society, decorated in gold and elegance to serve as a mockery of how we present ourselves to those around us. I wrote ‘I’ve Seen’ as a farewell song to this ballroom… just gonna stay a while longer. See you outside. +++ WASTING 4 U +++”
