Foals have shared their new single, ‘2am’, and announced the title of their forthcoming new album, ‘Life Is Yours’.
The second single to come from the record, ‘2am’ follows up on the previously revealed ‘Wake Me Up’, which arrived late last year.
Frontman Yannis Philippakis explains: “Musically ‘2am’ is one of the poppiest songs we’ve ever written. It’s about repetitive cycles of destructive behaviour, which I think lots of people can relate to, and certainly it’s an expression of something that I struggle with. There’s something cathartic about expressing that feeling to this upbeat music that’s got a sense of release and the hope of resolution.”
The track was produced by John Hill (Portugal The Man, Florence + The Machine, Cage The Elephant ) and Dan Carey (Tame Impala, Fontaines D.C.), and recorded during sessions at Real World Studios, Bath and Carey’s studio in south London. It was mixed by ten-time Grammy Award winner Manny Marroquin (Post Malone, Kanye West, Rihanna).
The two tracks revealed so far offer up a taster of the forthcoming ‘Life Is Yours’, which is set to land this summer. More news on the follow up to 2019’s ambitious two-part ‘Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost’ project is promised “soon”.
