This self-titled debut spawned hits like “My Body” and “I Got,” which helped solidify Young the Giant’s position as an exciting new force in alternative rock.
To date, Young the Giant has released three studio albums: “Young the Giant” (2010), “Mind over Matter” (2014) and “Home of the Strange” (2016).
