Bastille Unveils The Next Song On 'Wildly-Ambitious' New Album
Bastille is ramping up to release their next album, and the band is giving fans a taste of what to expect with their latest single, “Shut Off The Lights.” Frontman Dan Smith recently took to social media to share a clip of the new song, and fans are loving it.
“Shut Off The Lights” is the latest taste of Give Me The Future , Bastille’s upcoming, “wildly-ambitious” album. The new collection serves as “a tribute to tech times and a glimpse of what could be to come,” Bastille explains . “Exploring both the opportunities of new technology and the dark side of lives lived online, it’s as playful as it is thought-provoking, as dystopian as it is dancefloor-friendly and as electronic as Bastille have ever been.” The album is due out on February 4. Listen to “Shut Off The Lights” here :
Bastille has also debuted “No Bad Days,” “Distorted Light Beam,” and “Thelma + Louise,” which premiered during YUNGBLUD 's BBC Radio 1 takeover. Smith said at the time : “It’s this iconic feminist film about freedom, escapism, independence and escaping the worries and problems of life. I wanted to write a love letter to that film — a love letter to feminism, escapism and throwing off the shackles of a life that you may be frustrated by.”
