Watch Bastille debut ‘weird’ new song ‘The Currents’ at Snowbombing festival

"I hope you like it. It's a bit weird," says frontman Dan Smith before the band plays their new song

Bastille have debuted a new song called ‘The Currents’ during their set at Snowbombing festival tonight (April 7).

“I hope you like it. It’s a bit weird,” frontman Dan Smith told the crowd before the band played ‘The Currents’ live for the first time. Watch the song’s live debut below.

During their set at the Austrian festival’s The Forest Party stage, Bastille also played new song ‘Snake’, which they debuted live in 2015.

In February of this year, the South London band released a short video confirming that their second album is on its way. “I’ve heard lots of bands talking about making their ‘difficult’ second album, but we never thought that far ahead. I guess, until recently, we haven’t had much time to think about it,” Dan Smith said in the video.

“We’ve been so lucky to be touring constantly over the past few years, and it’s been a lot of fun,” he continued. “But it’s meant that we’ve massively had to adapt the way that we make music. This new album has been written and recorded on tour buses, in backstage rooms and hotels all over the place. The process of writing and making the songs hasn’t changed much, it’s just that this time around, we’re doing way less of it in my bedroom.”

Since then, no further album details, release dates or tracklisting have been released, although the band shared new track ‘Hangin’ back in September 2015.
