Transcendental Youth is the tentative name of the fourteenth studio album by the Mountain Goats. The album focuses on outcasts, recluses, the mentally ill, and others struggling in ordinary society. The album is loosely unified around a group of people living in Washington state.
The album involves collaboration with a capella quartet Anonymous 4 and will be arranged by long-time friend Owen Pallett.
