NEW MUSIC: BASTILLE | NO BAD DAYS
British pop-rock band Bastille announced their fifth studio album, “Give Me The Future,” along with the band’s latest single, "No Bad Days." The track follows previous singles "Thelma + Louise," "Distorted Light Beam," and "Give Me The Future" and is teamed with a video co-directed by Bastille's Dan Smith alongside Trash Factory. "Give Me To The Future" is described as “a tribute to humanity in a tech age” that “reflects on the strangeness of living through times that can feel like science fiction.” Conceptualized before the pandemic, Dan reveals: “Working on these songs in such an apocalyptic period, with everyone stuck at home, glued to screens, fed into the feeling that what is real and what is not has become pretty difficult to discern sometimes,” says Dan. “We’re in the age of deep fake, fake news and lying world leaders. But online, you can be anyone. What that does to our sense of self and our relationships is huge, It’s fascinating.” The record features the influence hitmaker Ryan Tedder as a “sounding board” and executive producer, while legendary songwriter Rami Yacoub (Britney Spears’ “…Baby One More Time”, Lady Gaga’s Chromatica Album) has co-writing credits on three tracks. On top of that, award-winning actor, musician, writer, creator, producer, director and activist Riz Ahmed provides a spoken-word piece, "Promises." "Give Me The Future" arrives next year on February 4, 2022, and is available to pre-order now.
