Deluxe White Vinyl 2XLP with 4 illustrated slipcovers and a gatefold jacket. Features Dystopia (The Earth Is On Fire), I Walked Alone, and Shangri-La.

Comes with an instant digital download. Shangri-La, YACHT's second album for DFA Records and the follow-up to their critically acclaimed full-length, See Mystery Lights, is the duo's most thematically ambitious work to date, showcasing an exponential evolution in songwriting and sharp, surreal hooks.

When the darkly anthemic track, "Dystopia (The Earth Is on Fire)" was released digitally in April, YACHT offered a window onto the new album.

Members Jona Bechtolt and Claire L. Evans described the track as an "apocalyptic fight song, a cautionary tale, a science-fiction story for our particular eco-sociopolitical landscape." These themes are echoed throughout the conceptually unified Shangri-La.

In contrast to the meditative, mantra-esque quality of their debut, Shangri-La is a narrative work.
