Bastille Announces New Album “Give Me The Future + Dreams Of The Past”, Shares New Song “Revolution”
British pop rock band Bastille, consisting of Dan Smith (vocals/keyboards), Kyle Simmons (keyboards), Will Farquarson (guitar), Chris 'Woody' Wood (drums), announced their new album “Give Me The Future + Dreams Of The Past” would be released on August 26, 2022.
The album follows up their fourth studio album “Give Me the Future”, which was released back in February.
“Give Me The Future + Dreams Of The Past” consists of three parts over 2 discs, including 9 new songs.
The band frontman Dan Smith shared on social media, “The process of making 'Give Me The Future' over the last few years involved making a whole load of music and a lot of experimenting, writing and recording. We'd always wanted the first glimpse into that world to be concise, surprisingly different and direct to the point. But the plan had always been to keep expanding on the stories and sound, and to explore more ideas. So we're massively excited to now get to show you the full picture with 'GIVE ME THE FUTURE + DREAMS OF THE PAST'.”
He continued, “There are three sections over 2 discs, and the idea that you can kind of choose your own adventure. You can explore ideas of the future via an electronic world in 'GIVE ME THE FUTURE'. You can fall back into the past - away from tech and into ideas of memory and nostalgia in 'DREAMS OF THE PAST'. Or you can choose full-on dancefloor heartbreak escapism by falling back into the world of 'OTHER PEOPLE'S HEARTACHE'. So, across the full double album there are a bunch of new songs and sounds to help you see the whole picture from a load of different angles.”
- From the album, the band released a new song “Revolution” on July 28, 2022.
The track was written by Dan Smith, Mark Crew and Ryan Tedder (OneRepublic). Produced by Mark Crew, Dan Smith and Dan Priddy.
He said of the new song, “I'm also really buzzing to share 'Revolution' with you now too. It's been one of the core songs for 'Give Me The Future' right from the start, and it was a tough decision to hold this off the first version of the album, but I'm glad we did so that you can finally hear it now. I hope the chorus drop is as much of a fun surprise to you as it was for us in the studio. We were bouncing off the walls when we got there. And if you think my dancing is bad on stage… jeeez you should have seen me that day in the studio. Anyway, the chorus is about the human connections of the every day through the lens of some spectral, science fiction imagery. But it's also about how brilliantly impressive we think those people who spend their lives trying to change the world in a positive way are. Hope you all enjoy it and let us know what you think x”
