‘Spanish Sahara’ was the first song to be released from the band’s second album ‘Total Life Forever’, which came out in 2010.
Foals frontman Yannis Philippakis celebrated the special anniversary of the fan favourite by posting a picture on the band’s Instagram account of an old map from a cassette he was once given as a gift.
“This is the original reference for the track title, taken from a cassette my friend & original singer in Foals [Andrew Mears] made for me,” he wrote in the accompanying caption. Yannis added: “I’ve never opened the tape & don’t intend to.”
Foals also recently shared a new video for ‘Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost’ album track ‘Wash Off’, which featured a timely reminder on the best way to wash your hands.
The ‘Wash Off PSA’ video showed someone following standard medical procedure for hand-washing, played on a loop to Foals’ track, with lyrics appearing at the foot of the screen. You can take a look at the video here.
Earlier this year, the band won Best Live Act at the NME Awards 2020, before scooping their first BRIT Award for Best Group.
