Local Natives Announce New LP, Share “April”: Stream

Local Natives are back to announce their sixth album But I’ll Wait For You, due out April 19th.

But I’ll Wait For You is a companion piece from last year’s Time Will Wait For No One, and was conceived during the same sessions with producer John Congleton. The Los Angeles quintet says in a statement that the new album is “the second half of a large body of music we made together” and serves as “maybe not an answer to a question but an exhale to an inhale.” See below for the album’s artwork and tracklist.

As a preview of But I’ll Wait For You, Local Natives have shared the album’s lead single, “April,” along with the track’s music video. With signature dueling vocals from Kelcey Ayer and Taylor Rice, “April” is a breezy slice of reverb-ridden soft rock. The band uses a commanding synth line as one of the song’s dominating features, and layer in light congas, a wah-pedalled guitar, and gentle harmonies throughout.

The music video for “April” was inspired by Francis Ford Coppola, and features the band spread out across downtown Los Angeles. They occasionally meet for some stark choreo, and meanwhile, band members are talking busily on old cell phones, someone is spying on them through binoculars, and the camera pans across a significant distance around Los Angeles’ Pershing Square. Watch the video below.

The band currently has a slew of US tour dates set for May, which kick off with an appearance at BeachLife Festival in Redondo Beach, California on May 4th. See Local Natives’ tour dates below, and get tickets to all their upcoming show here.

Local Natives’ last album was 2023’s Time Will Wait For No One, which we named as one of our favorite albums of July 2023. Revisit our interview with the band at Mad Cool Festival in 2022, where they discussed the 10th anniversary of Hummingbird and starting work on their now two-part album project.
