After months of teasing, Years & Years have released their sophomore album Palo Santo.

The new project, out Friday via Interscope Records, follows the band's North American tour and appearance on NBC's Late Night with Seth Meyers. In addition to the album, the group has shared a short film named after the record, starring frontman Olly Alexander, Dame Judi Dench and English actor Ben Wishaw.

"I thought, why not aim as high as possible? You only get one life and one chance," says Alexander of the new album. "Now it’s here and finished, I can’t believe we’re actually doing it. Now I’m not afraid of what people think of me. That’s a new feeling for me."
