~ Duo Album ~
Foals return with the news of two new albums, single, video and UK tour dates.
After more than a decade in the game, Foals again embrace that love for the unconventional with the bravest and most ambitious project of their career, not one but two astonishing new albums. ‘Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost’ is a pair of releases separate but related, they share a title, themes and artwork. ‘Part 1’ will be released on March 8th, with ‘Part 2’ following in the autumn.
Yannis Philippakis explains,
“They’re two halves of the same locket, they can be listened to and appreciated individually but fundamentally, they are companion pieces.”
The albums’ lead single ‘Exits’ is a case in point, featuring Philippakis conjuring the image of a disorienting world via a contagious vocal melody. It’s a fresh anthem for Foals’ formidable arsenal, but also an ominous forecast.
“There’s a definite idea about the world being no longer habitable in the way that it was,” says Yannis.
“A kind of perilousness lack of predictability and a feeling of being overwhelmed by the magnitudes of the problems we face. What’s the response? And what’s the purpose of any response that one individual can have?”
