Foals Release First Single from <i>Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost</i>

It’s been four years since Foals put out their last album—2015’s What Went Down and with a string of 2019 dates already announced, the Oxford indie-rock crew is set for a big year. With their label confirming the release of their next album, the band has further hyped the record by sharing footage from the studio on their Instagram story. Their original bassist, Walter Gervers, departed Foals earlier this year, so we’re not sure how that will affect their band dynamic, but in a statement on Twitter, the band assured fans that their next record will be “the best yet.”

Foals have released the lead single from the first of two forthcoming albums, both titled Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost.
The new single, titled “Exits,” will be among the 10 songs of Part 1, set for release on March 8th. With Part 2, containing another 10 songs, is slated for a fall 2019 release. A press release (rather unhelpfully, we might add) describes the albums as “separate but related.”

The video for “Exits” stars Game Of Thrones actor Isaac Hempstead-Wright, and establishes the themes of dread and isolation that will tie Foals’ cohesive new project together.
“There’s a definite idea about the world being no longer habitable in the way that it was,” frontman Yannis Philippakis said of the new single in a statement. “A kind of perilousness lack of predictability and a feeling of being overwhelmed by the magnitudes of the problems we face. What’s the response? And what’s the purpose of any response that one individual can have?”
Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 1 and 2 are “two halves of the same locket,” Philippakis adds. “They can be listened to and appreciated individually, but fundamentally, they are companion pieces.”
