Future Islands return with new single ‘For Sure’ and its stunning video

The indie stars have shared first single in three years

Future Islands have shared new single ‘For Sure’, their first new music in three years.

The track, which is the first official material the band have shared since 2017’s full-length album ‘The Far Field’, comes complete with a stunning new video.

Directed by Sam Mason, the video travels through a series of stunning post-apocalyptic landscapes – watch it below.



Last year, the band previewed seven new songs during a gig at the Pearl Street Nightclub in Northampton, Massachusetts. According to a fan present at the show, the tracks were called ‘The Painter’, ‘Hit The Coast’, ‘Born In A War’, ‘Thrill’, ‘B.Ham’, ‘Plastic Beach’, and ‘Moonlight’.

In a four-star review of Future Islands’ latest album, NME said: “In some respects on ‘The Far Field’, not that much has changed. Musically, they haven’t meddled with the formula they’ve been nurturing for a decade. The songs are built around Gerrit Welmers’ rippling synths and William Cashion’s propulsive basslines. And Herring’s still determined to plough all of his rawest emotions into the lyrics.”

Meanwhile, Future Islands frontman Samuel T. Herring released his debut rap solo album under the alias Hemlock Ernst in October 2019. ‘Back At The House’ was created with producer Kenny Segal.
