- Bastille Premieres New Song “Quarter Past Midnight” on BBC Radio 1
- British alternative pop band Bastille has released a new song “Quarter Past Midnight”. The track received its first play during BBC Radio 1.
The song will appear on their yet-untitled third studio album, which will be released later in 2018 via Virgin EMI Records.
The new album is their first LP in two years. Last alum "Wild World" reached number one on the UK Album Chart and number four on the US Billboard 200.
Last year, the band joined in Will Smith and Joel Edgerton's film "Bright", where they performed "World Gone Mad".
Frontman Dan Smith said of the song in a press release;
“‘Quarter Past Midnight’ is about trying to capture that moment of a night out. Some people are gonna go home; for some this is just the beginning. It became about being in someone's car, driving through the city. I wanted to try and capture that sense of excitement, and that rush.
It’s way easier to escape in the night time. Places that aren’t normally open are open to the world, and the places that you associate with reality and work are all shut down. There’s a parallel universe that exists, and this other set of people who are out and about.”
