Future Islands have revealed new song ‘The Chase’, which was recorded specially for Record Store Day.
The song was recorded direct to vinyl at Studio Three at London’s famous Abbey Road studios last month (March) and received its first radio play on BBC 6 Music this morning (April 18). The song can be heard here at the 2 hours 19 mark.
Just one copy of the vinyl is available at an unspecified record store in Britain. Stores were asked to put their names into a virtual hat via social media in order to be in the running to stock the single copy of the song. A press release reads: “Abbey Road will pick one retailer out at random on Thursday evening and deliver the lacquer direct to their store by Saturday morning.”
Future Islands will play the following UK and Ireland dates:
London Hyde Park (w/ The Strokes) (June 18)
Dorset End Of The Road Festival (September 4-6)
Laois Electric Picnic (4-6)
Manchester Academy (8)
Glasgow Barrowlands (9)
