Band release album of the same name on August 28

Foals‘ recent single ‘What Went Down’ has been remixed.

The reworking, airing below via Thump, is by British producer The Haxan Cloak. Listen now.

Speaking to NME recently, frontman Yannis Phillipakis said of the track: “The recorded version is the first one we ever played. I re-recorded the vocals but the rest of it is raw. It’s one of those moments you can have if you’re lucky in the studio where things seem to materialise fully formed.


“We wanted it to feel like the moment when a predatory animal goes in for the kill: there’s a savagery to it.”

Listen to this remix below.

Foals will release their fourth album ‘What Went Down’, the follow-up to 2013’s ‘Holy Fire’, on August 28.

The LP was recorded in the south of France with Simian Mobile Disco’s James Ford (Arctic Monkeys, Klaxons, Mumford & Sons).
