Close Your Eyes to Hear Local Natives' New Single "I Saw You Close Your Eyes"

When listening to their latest single, Local Natives want to see you close your eyes. The single, titled “I Saw You Close Your Eyes,” is posted on closeyoureyes.net. The site, developed by Lee Martin, promises “a focused listening experience which exists in an otherwise unfocused world.” Once on the site, listeners are asked to “grant access to [their] ... eyes.” When the webcam detects closed eyes, the new Local Natives single plays.

The single was released alongside a Local Natives cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Tusk” for the Spotify series “Music Happens Here,” which traced the full development of Fleetwood Mac’s eponymous album Tusk. The album was recorded in the same studio as Local Natives recorded their latest album, Sunlit Youth, the band revealed in a Facebook post.

These releases come in the middle of the band’s extensive Sunlit Youth tour: find a full list of tour dates below. You can also listen to “I Saw You Close Your Eyes Below” or via its website here, and watch Paste’s footage of the band performing circa 2009.
