Indie-electro trio Years & Years has announced their new album “Palo Santo” will be released on July 6.

The name is Spanish for “holy wood,” a wood incense from the coast of South America used for medicinal and spiritual purposes.

The announcement included a short film, directed by Fred Rowson, which features a voiceover from Dame Judi Dench. It also stars Years & Years’ out lead singer Olly Alexander and Thai actor Vithaya Pansringarm.

“Palo Santo has also become a city on a distant planet, on which human beings are a rare commodity, worshipped and idolized by an android society. Olly, along with the final humans, is recruited to perform in a series of bizarre erotic cabarets, for an artificial master known only as The Showman,” reads the film’s description.

The album will include the already released tracks ‘Sanctify” and “Hypnotised.”
