About this album

Young Prayer is the second solo album released by Animal Collective member Noah Lennox (stage name Panda Bear.) The album was a critical success, even being labeled “Best New Music” by Pitchfork. Notably, none of the songs on the album has a title because Lennox wanted the album to be “one nugget of sound. I put the track markers in there just to separate the sections.”
The songs were all written around the time of the death of Lennox’ father. About this fact, Lennox said:

“It was more a gift to my father when he was sick and I wanted to make him happy if I could and I wanted to cheer him up and I wanted to tell him that he’d done really great in his time. I was pretty fucked up but I wanted to keep going and I wanted to have strength and I suppose that comes out in the recording. I wouldn’t say it was therapeutic though, at least I never thought of it that way”.
