Aarhus four-piece Yung have announced their second LP is due out on January 22 2021 on vinyl and digitally via PNKSLM Recordings. 

The long-awaited follow-up to the post-punks' 2016 debut, 'A Youthful Dream', is preceded by a visual for opening single 'Above Water'. 

Speaking about the track the band, led by Mikkel Holm Silkj√¶r, say:

“For a long time we referred to this song as ‘The Yo La Tengo Song’. Finishing Above Water helped spark a curiosity towards a less obvious approach to songwriting. Originally, the song had a different ending but our friend and producer Neil R. Young swept in with a slick outro, which concluded the song in a big way. Lyrically, the song is an ode to individuals taking a stand against injustice and structures in society which oppose equality. These people often become the voice and the talisman of movements and generations, something that might come at a personal cost, but nonetheless something that makes way for dialog, discussions and hopefully positive change.”
