Foals have been at work on the follow-up to their 2019 sister albums ‘Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost: Part One’ and ‘Part Two’.

‘Wake Me Up’ will also mark the group’s first new material since the departure of their keyboardist Edwin Congreave last month. In a statement at the time, the musician told fans he’d “heard the new album – it is of course brilliant”.

Speaking to NME in August, frontman Yannis Philippakis explained: “We can see what the record is, and the future looks fantastic.”

He continued: “We’ve been working away and writing all year. We’re just in the last stages of it and it’s feeling like a more optimistic record than the last two. It’ll be a more physical record. We’re really excited to have a record that’s almost ready, but not quite.”

Elsewhere, Foals debuted a new track called ‘Novo’ during their first live show in 18 months.
