Foster The People announce new album 'Paradise State Of Mind'

Having been largely quiet since the release of their much-loved 2017 LP 'Sacred Hearts Club', Foster The People have now returned once again to announce the details behind their long-awaited new studio album, arriving later this year.

The new full-length 'Paradise State Of Mind' is being previewed by the lead single 'Lost In Space', which comes accompanied by a stunning Rupert Höller-directed video, and is set to be released on the 16th August.

Speaking about the new record, the band's Mark Foster said, "The record started as a case study of the late Seventies crossover between disco, funk, gospel, jazz, and all those sounds. It was such a beautiful moment in time, when these different styles of music were cross-referencing each other – artists like Nile Rogers and Chic, the Tom Tom Club and Giorgio Moroder.

"I wanted to dive into that and figure out what they were doing. I was also thinking about how that era has musical and social parallels to the time that we're in now, with the giant recession in the Seventies, the political turmoil post-Vietnam, and other major tensions. But then you see these expressions of joy happening through music, and I started thinking about joy as an act of defiance."
