  • Bastille Releases New Song “Shut Off The Lights”

  • British pop rock band Bastille will release their upcoming fourth studio album “Give Me the Future” on February 4, 2022 via Virgin EMI Records. It was executive produced by OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder.
    From the album, the band unveiled a new song “Shut Off The Lights” as the fifth single off.
    It was written by Dan Smith, Jonny Coffer, Phil Plested and Mark Crew. Produced by Mark Crew, Dan Smith, and Jonny Coffer.
    frontman Dan Smith said of the song, “Shut Off The Lights" is about being pulled out of your future-fearing anxieties by the person you're lying next to. It's about intimacy and physical connection, rejecting our worries about life and the future for a minute, and unplugging from it all to really be present. It's a fun, real, human moment in the middle of this big album. But also, it's a song that nods back to Paul Simon's Graceland and a load of music we love. It made us want to dance around the studio and is ridiculously fun to play live.”
  • Dan Smith shared on socialmedia, “Although a bunch of the album is in this dystopian world of technology and Future Inc., SOTL is the moment when you want to put your phone down, be pulled out of all your future fears by the person you’re with, and find some human connection. I had a lot of fun writing the demo one afternoon a while back with @jonnycoffer and @plested. Jonny came up with the brilliant guitar loop and the whole song just kind of fell out as I sang. I took it to @markbcrew and he loved it so we worked away at it in our studio, One Eyed Jack’s. In breaks between lockdowns, some friends would come to the studio and we’d add to the track. @charliebarnesmusic recorded the wonderful guitar riff, @jfabraham_ helped arrange some brass, and @rittipo laid down all the swirling sax you can hear all over it. When the guys came down, @woodybangsthedrums added some great drums and percussion, @kjesimmons elevated the whole thing with the smooth synths in the pre-chorus, and @williamfarquarson brought the chorus to life with his Graceland-esque fretless bass. Another afternoon around that time, we were rehearsing at the studio so a bunch of our touring crew pals were around. We wanted the chorus to sound big and raucous, so Mark had the idea of throwing a microphone on in the main room, gathering everyone around and laying down a big old gang vocal. I love that we have so many friends all over this song, seeing as it’s basically about getting out from inside your head and being in the room, and the wonderful distraction of human connection.”


  • The new album comprises 13-track, featuring guest appearances from Riz Ahmed and Bim.
    It leans heavily into Dan Smith's fondness for Sci-Fi film. The previous music video for “No Bad Days” was themes of resurrecting loved ones through technology, directed by Dan Smith himself.
    Dan Smith told The Guardian, “Recording has always been the thing I do for fun. The studio is the bit I love. Touring and all the other things that come with being in a band are just a side point to making songs, writing songs and creating something out of nothing. Which, for me and my basic little brain, is really satisfying.”
    Recently, Bastille contributed "Hope For the Future" to a short film “From Devil's Breath”, produced by Leonardo DiCaprio.
