Foals launch video for Record Store Day track ‘Rain’ – watch

The limited release is in high demand for tomorrow's vinyl-buying bonanza

Foals have launched a new video for previously unreleased track ‘Rain’, which is set to drop on vinyl for Record Store Day tomorrow (April 16).

The track will be launched as a vinyl single alongside a b-side cover of Mark Ronson and Kevin Parker (Tame Impala)’s ‘Daffodil’. Both tracks were recorded as part of the sessions that produced latest album ‘What Went Down’. You can see a full list of Record Store Day 2016 releases here.

The lo-fi video recording, in fact, is also taken fresh from the album recording sessions, which took place at La Fabrique in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, France. The footage itself is by Kit Monteith, who also worked on the band’s CCTV Sessions release from back in 2013.

The fresh recording doesn’t look likely to precede a quick studio return, however. Foals recently suggested that the band will take a break before making a new record.

Speaking at the NME Awards with Austin, Texas, frontman Philippakis said: “We’ve only just put out a record so I think we’ve afforded to take some time [for a break]. I don’t think there’s a rush right now. We need to live life again, that’s always beneficial to making a record.”

“I think we need to take a break,” he added. “It’s hard to predict [how long that will be]. We might start writing again tomorrow.”

The Oxford act will headline Reading and Leeds Festivals this summer, while their latest ‘What Went Down’ won Best Album at the NME Awards earlier this year.
