Local Natives have released a new song, but it comes with a few prerequisites.
Titled "I Saw You Close Your Eyes," it requires that listeners literally "close your eyes" to hear it. “Please turn the lights off in your room and turn the brightness up on your laptop," the band requests on the website for their song, further explaining users' webcams will be utilized to detect eyes and ensure they're closed for the duration of the track.
In addition to "Close Your Eyes," the band has also released a cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Tusk," recorded in the same studio as the original. The rendition is part of Spotify's "Music Happens Here" series.
Listen to "I Saw You Close Your Eyes" here and hear Local Natives' take on "Tusk" below. The band has subsequently released "Eyes" to stream on YouTube. Hear it below as well.
