Heaven Is a Junkyard is the fourth studio album by Boise, Idaho-based musician Trevor Powers' Youth Lagoon project. It was released on June 9, 2023, by Fat Possum Records. It marks Trevor Powers' return to the moniker after announcing the end of Youth Lagoon in 2016. It is his first album since recording two albums under his own name — 2018's Mulberry Violence and 2020's Capricorn. Produced by Powers and Rodaidh McDonald, Heaven Is a Junkyard was written by Powers in his home state of Idaho. Following a reaction to an over-the-counter medication, Powers lost his voice for months and wrote the album during a slow healing process. The album's lyrics explore themes of love, drugs, home, and miracles. Combining piano and electronics, the album has been described as "mutant Americana" and is a blend of country, spiritualism, experimental music, and ambient elements. The album was supported with the release of three singles: "Idaho Alien", "Prizefighter" and "The Sling".
