Youth Lagoon has shared a new song, “Football.” Trevor Powers’ new single, produced by Rodaidh McDonald, will get released as a limited-edition 7″ and comes with a video directed by Caleb Halter. Watch it below.
Powers said of the song in a statement: “‘Football’ is really a celebration of failure. Society has a terrible habit of only recognizing achievement while glossing over the greatness in the shadows. We’re so distracted trying to earn love, worth and value that we forget it’s something we inherently already have. I wanted to play with this idea through the lens of sports ‘cuz, in a lot of ways, sports are the truest religion.”
After an eight-year hiatus from the project, Powers released his most recent Youth Lagoon album, Heaven Is a Junkyard, in 2023.
