We locked ourselves away and began writing an album that encompasses all of the fears, anxieties and emotions that have consumed us all,” wrote the group. SHAED said “No Other Way” is about how they’ve attempted to remain optimistic when things seem uncertain. “We wrote this song as a reminder to live in the moment, which is the only thing we can control.” A music video for the new track will be released soon, and their forthcoming album is set to be released in April 2021.

Local Natives and Sharon Van Etten | Lemon
A new EP is coming really soon from Local Natives. The band shared a song from the upcoming project and it’s a collaboration with Sharon Van Etten. The track is titled “Lemon,” and their EP is called Sour Lemon, which will be released on October 23rd. Their new song follows their “Statues in the Garden” release from September, and it was just last year when the band dropped their fourth studio album Violet Street.
Local Natives spoke out about their music-making process, and expressed how they couldn’t wait any longer to share their work with the world. “We’re always working on new music, but songs tend to come at their own pace. There’s something freeing about writing without the goal of an album in mind. It feels like waking up for class only to realize that it’s Saturday and you can sleep in as long as you want. The songs on Sour Lemon each have their own long histories but they all finally decided to arrive at the same time.” Watch the music video to “Lemon” below.
