With their eagerly-awaited new album now less than a month away, Foals have dropped the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.
The new single '2001' comes accompanied by a brilliant new video, directed by Esteban and shot in Costa Brava, Spain, and follows on from the previously shared tracks '2am', 'Looking High' and 'Wake Me Up' in previewing their new LP 'Life Is Yours', which is out on the 17th June via Warner Records.
Speaking about the new offering, frontman Yannis Philippakis said "2001 feels like a postcard from the past. We moved to Brighton around that time, we were a young band, and there was the feeling of the first taste of independence. The moment you get those freedoms, you’re surrounded by temptation. The references to beachside candy and Brighton rock are symbols for drugs and hedonism. This was written in the depths of the pandemic winter, and there’s an escapist desire to break out from the feeling of being cooped up, both in terms of the pandemic and adolescence."
