Young the Giant share a new music video for their recent single “Simplify,” the band’s first new music since the release of 2016’s critically acclaimed Home of the Strange. The band performed the track live last week on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert (see here). “Simplify” is available now via Elektra Records at all music retailers and streaming services.

The “Simplify” video features multi-dimensional visuals and kaleidoscope effects that amplify the power of simplicity.
“Everything in modern life is complicated,” explains lead singer Sameer Gadhia. “Each decision divides into possible alternatives, reflections multiplying within themselves endlessly, like a room of a thousand mirrors. We construct images of how life should be lived: how to act, dress, tweet, and vote, and often times it is easy to lose your true self to the images we create for all to see. But love is simple, and to love someone is to love all of humanity. It is the closest thing to truth, and even though love can be compromising, painful, and exhausting, we can only see our truest selves in the eyes of another. This is the essence of “Simplify”.”
Since the band’s 2010 inception, Young the Giant has made a name for itself in rock as the “thinking man’s band,” winning over fans, radio, and press with their incendiary live shows, strong musicianship, and poignant lyrics. Young the Giant is composed of Sameer Gadhia (vocals), Jacob Tilley (guitar), Eric Cannata (guitar/vocals), Payam Doostzadeh (bass), and Francois Comtois (drums/vocals).
