Young The Giant Release New Song, "Simplify" and Announce Tour Dates
Young the Giant have shared "Simplify," their first new music since the release of 2016's critically acclaimed Home of the Strange. "Simplify" is available now via Elektra Records at all music retailers and streaming services. Listen to the song now below.
"Simplify," produced by Alex Salibian (Harry Styles), comes at a time when there's so many points of conflict and scrutiny around us every day, yet Young the Giant have found some space to breathe with this song, focusing on the unequivocal power of some loving eye contact.
"Everything in modern life is complicated," explains lead singer Sameer Gadhia. "Each decision divides into possible alternatives, reflections multiplying within themselves endlessly, like a room of a thousand mirrors. We construct images of how life should be lived: how to act, dress, tweet, and vote, and often times it is easy to lose your true self to the images we create for all to see. But love is simple, and to love someone is to love all of humanity. It is the closest thing to truth, and even though love can be compromising, painful, and exhausting, we can only see our truest selves in the eyes of another. This is the essence of "Simplify"."
