We've heard so little from Local Natives since the Los Angeles band broke out back in the summer of 2010. And now, suddenly, there's a new album called Hummingbird due January 19, a new song dubbed "Breakers" to hear, and a globe-trotting trip to report. 

The first taste of the upcoming long-player features the organic percussion, chiming guitar-play, and epic emotives we've come to expect from these fellas, though with a stronger sense of pacing and studio dynamism. According to the band's rep, Local Natives tracked the record in Montreal before relocating to Brooklyn. The National's Aaron Dessner co-produces. The live shows pick up in Tokyo on November 4, and carry Local Natives into late April. Find the track list, tune, and tour dates below.
