Foals have offered fans a preview of their new music in a brief video.

The short clip can be seen below. It begins with footage of the band performing in a small room while ambient music plays before a brief segment of a new song can be heard. Watch the video below, now.



Earlier this year, the band told NME that recording their album 'Total Life Forever' in Gothenburg, Sweden in the middle of winter was a "ludicrous" idea, adding that they would record their forthcoming, as-yet-untitled album closer to home.

In the Albums of 2015 issue of NME, Foals keyboardist Edwin Congreave discussed the band's plans for the follow up to 2013's 'Holy Fire', which they begun work on in April 2014. "The aim is to record early [in 2015]. I'd like to do it here [London] – or as close to my house as possible, because I've discovered late in life that I really love staying at home!" Congreave said.

Frontman Yannis Philippakis recently said that the band's forthcoming album will be "heavier, poppier and weirder" than 2013's 'Holy Fire'. The singer described pushing the sound "so the extremes were further apart", adding that Nick Cave has heavily influenced his lyrics.

Discussing the new sound, Philippakis tells Q: "We felt that the spread on 'Holy Fire' was good but on this we wanted to push it out even further, so the extremes were further apart. The heavier songs are heavier, the poppy songs are poppier and weirder."

In October 2014, Foals posted a picture from their studio as they began work on new material.
