Bastille have returned with a brand new track, ‘Distorted Light Beam’.
The first taster from the band’s forthcoming album – set to arrive later this year – it was given a first spin on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show as her Hottest Record earlier today (23rd June).
Co-written and co-produced with hitmaker Ryan Tedder alongside the band’s long-time collaborator Mark Crew, frontman Dan Smith explains: “For us Distorted Light Beam soundtracks dancing through some twisted, euphoric futuristic club space. It’s a song about limitless possibilities – which isn’t something any of us actually have in real life right now, so it’s been fun to explore that idea while experimenting with new sounds in our music.”
‘Distorted Light Beam’ follows up on their recent EP ‘Goosebumps’. Its video features a newly developed immersive technology, Futurescape, created by pioneering global tech entity Future Inc transform life as we know it, and stars Remmie Milner from BAFTA winning series Save Me.

This summer, Bastille will take their ReOrchestrated show back on the road, headlining both Latitude and Standon Calling with a further two sold out shows at Hampton Court Palace Festival in August.
