Youth Lagoon has detailed recently announced LP Savage Hills Ballroom and shared its lead single "The Knower".

The 10 songs were recorded in Bristol and mixed/engineered by Ali Chant (PJ Harvey, Gravenhurst). It follows 2013's Wondrous Bughouse.

In a statement, Powers said of the record:

This is Savage Hills Ballroom.
I've been waiting for quite some time and have seen much in your absence.
I know you have seen it too.
Love and the typical chaos of humanity.
Society has an internal desire to exude a perfect existence.
No one has found it.
This will serve as your home.
A place of abundance and transparency.
The pleasure of your company is invaluable.
Everything here is made of gold.

-Trevor Powers

Savage Hills Ballroom will be releaesd 25 September on Fat Possum.
