Youth Lagoon readies Savage Hills Ballroom, tours (2015)

Youth Lagoon – aka Idaho-native Trevor Powers – has confirmed his third album, Savage Hills Ballroom, out September 25 via Fat Possum Records. Often perceived as a recluse (his first LP is called The Year of Hibernation, after all), on Savage Hills Ballroom Powers has fully opened himself to the world for the first time ever. The 10-track collection is his most ambitious, unguarded work to date, recorded in Bristol, UK and co-produced/mixed/engineered by Ali Chant (PJ Harvey, Gravenhurst). First single “The Knower” is streaming now via NPR:
