Foals Releases New Song “2001”
- British rock band Foals, consisting of Yannis Philippakis (vocals/guitar), Jack Bevan (drums) and Jimmy Smith (rhythm guitar/keyboards), released a new song “2001” along with a music video.
The song is the fourth single off of their upcoming seventh studio album “Life Is Yours”, following “Wake Me Up”, “2am” and “Looking High”.
It was written by Yannis Philippakis, Jack Bevan and Jimmy Smith. Produced by John Hill and A. K. Paul. The video was directed by Esteban.
Yannis Philippakis said of the song, “'2001' feels like a postcard from the past. We moved to Brighton around that time, we were a young band, and there was the feeling of the first taste of independence. The moment you get those freedoms, you're surrounded by temptation. The references to beachside candy and Brighton rock are symbols for drugs and hedonism. This was written in the depths of the pandemic winter, and there's an escapist desire to break out from the feeling of being cooped up, both in terms of the pandemic and adolescence.”
The new album is set to be released on June 17, 2022 and comprises 11-track.
He said of the album, “This is our idea of a going out record. We were thinking about parties, club nights and being drunk on the bus at 2am trying to get home. All of it: the excitement before you go out, meeting up with your friends, the wild abandon. 'Who's got the pingers? Where are we going?' This is all of that youthful excess of going out.”
