Following on from the release of their brilliant dual albums 'Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost Part 1 & Part 2' in 2019, Foals are back to deliver a brand new single.
The new track 'Wake Me Up' was produced by John Hill, features co-production from Miles James and additional production by A. K. Paul, and marks their first new material since the departure of keyboardist Edwin Congreave earlier this year.
Speaking about the new offering, frontman Yannis Philippakis said, “There’s a journey that the band has gone on experimenting with different palettes of sound. This time there was a desire to take it back to more of the initial idea of the band where the rhythm, the grooves and the guitars are interlocking architecturally. We wanted to tap into the physicality of music. And we wanted it to feel good.
"With 'Wake Me Up', I just wanted to write a song about transporting yourself to a better, idyllic situation. I think we all had that feeling of the last eighteen months being like a weird fever dream that felt surreal but very affecting. I think we all wished we could have woken up somewhere else at various points."
