Foals debut new track 'My Number' on 'Later... With Jools Holland' - watch
The band unveil a second track from forthcoming album 'Holy Fire'
Performing on the long-running BBC Two showcase, the Oxford band gave a live airing to 'My Number' for the first time. Following the debut of 'Inhaler' last week, it is the second taste of their forthcoming third album 'Holy Fire'. You can hear it below.
Speaking about the song earlier this year, frontman Yannis Phillippakis told NME: "There’s a track called 'My Number' that had a Curtis Mayfield groove which was pretty unashamedly funk, for want of a better word."
We've always been pretty rhythmically preoccupied, but once the four-to-the-floor, hi-hat indie disco stuff's dead and buried with a chain of garlic around its neck, that feels like a really fertile place to go.
'Holy Fire' is due for release in February 2013. Meanwhile, Foals have just announced a string of dates to co-incide with the release:
