Palo Santo is the upcoming second studio album by English synth-pop band Years & Years. It is set to be released on 6 July 2018 and was written and recorded in the 18 months following the end of the band's world tour for Communion. It is supported by the lead single "Sanctify", released on 7 March 2018, which reached number 25 on the UK Singles Chart. Years & Years revealed the track listing on 24 April 2018.
The album and its imagery will continue the concept of a genderless dystopian society populated by androids known as Palo Santo (Spanish for "holy wood"), first shown in the music video for "Sanctify". A campaign featuring a messenger bot interacting with fans on the band's Twitter account, billboard posters with QR codes and pages from a graphic novel has also been launched for the album. The album will also feature the full-length version of the song "Hypnotised", previously only used in part in a short film for fashion company H&M's collection by British designer Erdem.
