British pop-rock band Bastille appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden to perform “Shut Off The Lights.” The song is included on their fourth studio album, “Give Me the Future,” released on February 4, 2022. The track, which the group described as “a sonic love letter to Paul Simon’s Graceland,” finds frontman Dan Smith singing about an emotionally grounding relationship: “This room is our universe, you are my gravity tonight/No talk of the future now/Dark thoughts, you’re shaking ’em, taking ’em out/This rhythm that we create sets me straight.” "Give Me The Future," which tells the story of a fictional tech giant called Future Inc. and its “Futurescape” device — is Bastille’s second concept album. The group’s previous release, 2019’s "Doom Days," centred around finding distraction and joy amid an impending apocalypse and featured singles “Joy” and “Quarter Past Midnight.” Bastille is currently wrapping up a UK tour centred around a series of intimate out store gigs in partnership with the UK’s independent record stores. In April, it will return to venues more typical of a band its size when it kicks off the first leg of the "Give Me The Future" arena tour, many dates of which have already sold out.
