Compassion‘, due March 18th via Sacred Bones Records, Lust For Youth have shared new track ‘Display‘ from the record.

With guest vocals from Copenhagen-based artist Soho Rezanejad, who previously collaborated withLust For Youth on the track ‘Armida’ on 2014’s International , new single ‘Display‘ is a moment of emotional synth-pop bliss from the Copenhagen trio. It’s a song that’s made for the aftermath of a beautifully lit dancefloor, to be heard and handled surrounded by bodies


LFY will be heading out on tour next month with shows in LA, NYC, and Austin for SXSW before heading back to Europe for a string of dates. Find the album info and tour dates below.

Lust For Youth are a three piece from Copenhagen made up of Hannes Norrvide, Malthe Fischer & Loke Rahbek. 2014’s acclaimed album, International, took the melancholic insomnia of their former releases out into the street and away from the domestic frustrations of a life in headphones. Suddenly, surrounded by bodies, and with a staccato heart, Balearic infatuations and capricious nights in crowded clubs set the mood for Norrvide’s pining sighs. International marked Lust For Youth‘s newfound decadence with fully resolved charm and enhanced self-deprecation.

This was swiftly channeled into their recent hit, ‘Better Looking Brother‘. Compassion’s first single was streamed over 50k times in its first month, capping off a highly successful 2015 of worldwide tours and critical social media updates.

Compassion restates beauty for a time of crisis and clickbait. Judgement, design, form, and opinion: to what end will we refine our world if we can’t also make an anthem of our lives? This is the tender conspiracy: I’m on twitter; I have an anthem. Do we have an anthem? We have lust. Let’s meet IRL.

Lust For Youth are affectionately vicious, and vulnerably sharp. They are the anticipation of the comedown as you come up on the best you’ve ever been offered from a bathroom stall. This is the spectrum: a low you know, and a dizzy new height.

Hearts blind lights and finance desire. Is it the fate of the cunning to look good, or is it just cunning to look this good? Compassion is dexterity: we all look this good. An impulse is an appetite, and you’re entitled to everything. Multitask collapse and revolution because you’re a beautiful mess.

Compassion is deliverance.
Anticipate compassion.
