“This one is for you. Our new album LIFE IS YOURS is out 17th June,” Foals wrote in a statement to accompany the update. “While we were writing in the throes of last winter, we wanted to find a new way to express ourselves.”
They added: “We can’t wait to share LIFE IS YOURS with you. A very limited number of signed album bundles – vinyl, CD & cassette – plus a new merch line are also available. Spring is on its way.”
Speaking to NME in a Big Read cover interview earlier this month, Philippakis described ‘Life Is Yours’ as “our idea of a going out record”.
“We were thinking about parties, club nights and being drunk on the bus at 2am trying to get home,” he continued.
“All of it: the excitement before you go out, meeting up with your friends, the wild abandon. ‘Who’s got the pingers? Where are we going?’ This is all of that youthful excess of going out.”
This morning saw Foals being announced as one of the headliners for this year’s Latitude festival, which takes place in July – check out NME‘s new interview with the band on what to expect from the show here.
