Before Local Natives officially release their new album Sunlit Youth this Friday, the band has made the gleaming record available to stream in full.

All 12 tracks can be heard on Tumblr as a full visual experience accompanied by photos, video and behind—the—scenes moments from the recording of Sunlit Youth, created in collaboration with the band and their art director Brian Roettinger.

"We have special memories of racing back from the record store to finally listen to a new album," the band said regarding the advanced stream. "Digging through the artwork, sometimes even painfully waiting days to listen to a new record in its entirety to make sure the first listen was uninterrupted. We’re happy to finally share Sunlit Youth with you, tied with visuals ... to give you that first album listening experience.”

As we previously mentioned, Local Natives is also heading out on tour in support of the new album.
