Foals have dropped a guitar-driven new tune, “The Runner,” which is the second single from their forthcoming album, Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 2.
The new album is set to move toward a heavier direction, and this new track makes that move apparent. The track feels like a back and forth between the gritty guitar lines and frontman Yannis Philippakis’ wailing vocals. “It’s a call to find a sense of purpose and perseverance despite the odds and despite the troubles we may find inside or outside ourselves,” Philippakis explains in a statement.
Listen to “The Runner” below.
Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 2 is set for release on October 18th.
