After releasing Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 1, Foals have detailed the forthcoming second half of the project, which is set to drop later this year.
During Radio 1’s Big Weekend, frontman Yannis Philippakis chatted with NME where he explained that the new album is set to be “heavier” and have “more guitars.” “There’s a 10-minute awesome space jam – like a Stanley Kubrick prog epic – and then there’s just some big riffs all over the record,” Philippakis explained in the interview. “It’s quite different from the first part, which we felt was more dance-y and more new wave.”
He also continued to explain that Part 2 is essentially complete, with nothing but a few tweaks to the mix left. “We’re just really excited for people to hear that ’cause I think it’s gonna show a different side to the project, if not the band. It’s quite different from Part 1.”
