Bastille have debuted a brand new track, ‘Thelma + Louise’.
Premiered as the Hottest Record on last night’s (18th August 2021) BBC Radio 1 Future Sounds show, currently being helmed by Yungblud, you can check it out below.
Taken from the band’s forthcoming, as yet unannounced new album, the track was co-written with legendary songwriter Rami Yacoub (Britney Spears’ ‘Hit Me Baby One More Time’, Lady Gaga’s ‘Chromatica’ album) and longtime collaborator Mark Crew. It follows up on first teaser track ‘Distorted Light Beam’, showcasing a whole new creative vision for the band, described by frontman Dan Smith as the opportunity to “poke fun at the way these companies appeal to us and appeal to the world, and advertise themselves and talk about themselves, and take themselves really seriously and earn huge amounts of money whilst taking all our data and more”.
Modernity has failed us, eh?
An official video for ‘Thelma + Louise’ is promised to follow, but you can check out a special live performance of the track below.
