On June 17th, Foals will release Life Is Yours, their highly anticipated sevent studio album via ADA/ Warner UK Ltd. Life Is Yours is the follow-up to the triumphant, two-part Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost, which NPR Music hailed as “big and adventurous… vibrant and versatile.” It proved to be a pivotal pinnacle in the band’s story, leading to their first UK #1 album and a Mercury Prize nomination.
Yannis Philippakis says, “We wanted to refocus and do something that shared a DNA throughout the songs: a physicality, a danceability, and with energy and joyousness. It’s definitely the poppiest record we’ve ever made. I feel that with Everything Not Saved… we touched upon all of the facets of our sound up until that point. This time we wanted to find a new way to express ourselves.” Life Is Yours is available for pre-order on all formats here. Standard formats include digital/streaming, CD, vinyl and cassette, while a selection of exclusive vinyl formats are also available. Foals’ official store has a double-vinyl format, Amazon offers a transparent Curaçao-coloured vinyl, while key indie stores will stock a white vinyl version.
“Wake Me Up” was highlighted during the most recent Super Bowl as well as the NFL’s Super Wild Card Weekend on NBC, and it is included in Fortnite’s Rock & Royale radio station. The single is top 10 this week at both Alternative Radio and Triple-A Radio on the Mediabase Airplay Charts. The band also shared the music video for “2am” directed by Tanu Muiño and filmed in Kiev with an entirely Ukrainian crew. The Ukrainian director is best known for helming one of the biggest videos of recent years with Lil Nas X’s “Montero.” Foals recently shared their love and support for the people of Ukraine here.
