Local Natives released their second album, Hummingbird, on January 29, 2013 via Frenchkiss. In honor of its fifth anniversary the band have shared an 8-minute demo version of the album’s “Colombia” (the album version is 4:50). They have also shared a series of short making-of videos showing them recording the album and launched a Tumblr dedicated to the album. Check out the “Colombia” demo and behind the scenes videos below.

Hummingbird was recorded in Ditmas Park, Brooklyn with co-producer Aaron Dessner (of The National), in his home studio. In 2016 Local Natives released their third album, Sunlit Youth, via Loma Vista and Infectious Music. Kelcey Ayer (Local Natives’ vocalist, pianist, and one of the band’s primary songwriters) released his debut solo album under the name Jaws of Love. (the period at the end of the name is intentional), Tasha Sits Close to the Piano, last September via House Arrest.
