Local Natives’ new song will only play if your eyes are closed

Local Natives have released their new song “I Saw You Close Your Eyes.” Before you give the song a listen on its website, CloseYourEyes.net, the band have a very specific set of instructions that you need to follow. “In order for this experience to work best, please turn the lights off in your room and turn the brightness up on your laptop,” begins the directions. “If you’re wearing glasses, remove them for a moment. Then click the link to grant access to your eyes below, position your head about 12 inches from the screen and close your eyes when you’re ready to listen.” The website will then use your computer’s camera, and the song will play only if you keep your eyes closed the entire time. Listen to it here if you are ready.

The band also shared their cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Tusk.”  They recorded the cover in the same studio where Fleetwood Mac recorded their original. It is part of a new Spotify series called “Music Happens Here.” Listen to it below.
