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.”
- 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.
