Bastille Releases New Song “Remind Me”
- British pop rock band Bastille, consisting of Dan Smith (vocals/keyboards), Kyle Simmons (keyboards), Will Farquarson (guitar), Chris 'Woody' Wood (drums), released a new song “Remind Me” on June 10, 2022.
As their own original song, the song is their first music since their fourth studio album “Give Me the Future”, and as the single, follows up the collaborative song “Run Into Trouble” with Brazilian DJ Alok, which was released back in April.
It was written by Dan Smith, Rami Yacoub and Mark Crew. Produced by A Strut, Dan Smith and Mark Crew.
The accompanying music video was directed by Brett Danton.
Dan Smith said of the song, “I started working on 'Remind Me' a few years ago in LA with some writer friends at the very beginning of the 'Give Me The Future' album process. We weren't really sure what it would be for but always loved how different it felt. Finishing it off in London with Mark Crew and the rest of the guys we'd wanted to make something sharp and minimal. The lyrics are about how our minds can taunt us with memories that play uncontrollably like scenes on a loop, so we set the track over this hypnotic, rolling guitar riff. We invited a bunch of singers to lend their voices to the track.”
- He continued, “We'd been diving into a bunch of music from the 80s that had sounded futuristic at the time, so it fits with the ideas of the past's versions of the future that we explore across the album. This song was like a jumping off point for us a couple of years ago and helped shape the sonic tone of the whole GMTF album. Plus, I'm a massive Michel Gondry and “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” fan, and love how that film explores memory and relationships, so it was fun to nod to it.”
