Young the Giant has released the first track from their forthcoming, third album, Home of the Strange. The song, inspired by early 20th century German writer Franz Kafka, is called “Amerika,” and it is streaming now on YouTube.
“We find ourselves searching for our own ethics in between the often-contradictory beliefs of this polarized American Modern Age and those of the romanticized cultures of our forefathers,” says Young the Giant of “Amerika.” “Our perspective is irreversibly tinged with this rhetoric of the immigrant conscience and guilt. ‘Amerika’ explores the contradictions of our psyche and America at large.”
Home of the Strange will be released August 12.
