Foals‘ new album Life Is Yours drops this Friday, but if you need something to tide you over until then, the band has released one more song off the record.
The latest track is called “Crest of the Wave” and is available now via digital outlets.
As frontman Yannis Philippakis explains, the origins of “Crest of the Wave” date back all the way to 2011.
“It was one of those songs which had always been at the back of our minds, like there was some unfinished business there,” Philippakis shares. “As we were playing around with it with some of the themes on this record, we cracked it open and really reveled in adding lots of layers to it in the studio. I was looking at the power of the lyrics to transport myself and the listener somewhere else.”
“Crest of the Wave” follows the previously released Life Is Yours songs “Wake Me Up,” “2am,” “2001” and “Looking High.”
Just this week, Foals announced a U.S. headlining tour in support of Life Is Yours, set to kick off in October. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m. local time.
