Foals has released a new song called “Wake Me Up.”

The track, which you can download now via digital outlets, is the first preview of the next Foals album, due out in 2022.

“There’s a journey that the band has gone on experimenting with different palettes of sound,” says frontman Yannis Philippakis.

“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,” he explains. “We wanted to tap into the physicality of music. And we wanted it to feel good.”

The currently untitled album will be the follow-up to Foals’ 2019 two-part release Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost. It’ll also be the English outfit’s first effort following the departure of original keyboardist Edwin Congreave this past September.
