Ambitious in scale and execution, Foals’ two-part album ‘Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost’ took them to new heights as they shot to #1 on the UK Official Album Charts for the first time and earned the BRIT Award for Best Group.
Now Foals share their brand new single "Wake Me Up" as the first taste of their eagerly anticipated new album, which will follow in 2022.
A pared-back counterpoint to the sheer scale of ‘Everything Not Saved…’, "Wake Me Up" shimmers with choppy, Chic-esque guitars, tight syncopated rhythms and Foals’ prototype flair for punchy, insistent hooks. It feels like a natural evolution, blending fresh influences with echoes of their roots as purveyors of rambunctious house party chaos. Frontman Yannis Philippakis says, “There’s a journey that the band has gone on experimenting with different palettes of sound…we wanted to tap into the physicality of music. And we wanted it to feel good.”
