Watch: Years & Years’ Emotional Live Performance of Sanctify

The first in a trilogy of live sessions, filmed for Vevo Originals, Olly Alexander’s performance of new single, Sanctify, will give you goosebumps.


“It’s another day in the sprawling metropolis of Palo Santo and Years & Years have finished performing yet another cabaret in the decadent Grand Hall. Nothing but a few androids and a lonely janitor remain. They prepare to leave, yet, spotting the stage the band can’t help but perform… this is Years & Years – Sanctify live.”

“You don’t have to be straight with me, I see what’s underneath your mask. I’m a man like you, I breathe the rituals of the dancer’s dance,” sings frontman Olly Alexander, and the emotion is palpable.

This beautiful new track is the first taste of Years & Years’ hugely-anticipated forthcoming second album, Palo Santo. Watch the video below.
