New Music | Foals – The Runner


Words by Kieran Webber | Header Image: Alex Knowles 

Foals earlier in the year made a triumphant return to the limelight with their latest album ‘Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost’. Since the release the band have been hard at work touring the world, playing a variety of festivals and venues. It’s been a wild ride for the band but it’s showing no signs of slowing down. The album has just been shortlisted for a Mercury Prize and the second installment to the album ‘Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 2’ is out October 18th.

Their latest single ‘The Runner’, which follows on from their belting ‘Black Bull’ takes a slower pace, bringing forward a intricate sound. The vocals bounce over a playful yet jagged riff, pushed forward by an anthemic chorus.

Listen to ‘The Runner’ here:

‘Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 2’ will be released on CD, digital and vinyl formats. Special editions include an orange vinyl that will be available exclusively through indie stores and a picture disc which is designed to be added to the ‘Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost’ Collector’s Edition boxset. The album is available to pre-order from https://foals.me/enswbl2, with ‘The Runner’ and ‘Black Bull’ provided as instant downloads.
