Foals return with Exits, trail two part album Everything Will Not Be Lost

The all-conquering art-rock headliners Foals have announced their return with new single Exits, confirmation of the release of the first part of their new double album and also some live dates in the UK later in the year.

It seems more than a little bit of a hyper inflated gesture in an era in which many artists are starting to question the future of the extended format to release not one but two, but if Exits is any gauge, Everything Will Not Be Lost promises to be more than just marketing gimmickry.

Preceded by new single Exits which you can hear below, the first volley is scheduled for release on March 8th, with the other sometime later this year. Lead Foal Yannis Philippakis told NME “The first record is probably more keyboard-driven and has slightly more of a new wave feel to it. Then album two has more of the heavier rock frenetic energy.”

As a refresher you can read a review of their last album What Went Down here.
