Foals will return in February with their third album, and first since 2010’s Total Life Forever. According to NME, Holy Fire was produced by the duo of Flood and Moulder, who previously worked with Nine Inch Nails, PJ Harvey, and Smashing Pumpkins. The lead single, “Inhaler”, will see light on November 5th.
Speaking with NME, frontman Yannis Philippakis said, “There are some heavier moments and some dirtier moments. It’s swampy, some of the grooves are quite stinky. There’s a track called ‘My Number’ that had a Curtis Mayfield groove which was pretty unashamedly funk, for want of a better word.”
The album is due out in the UK on February 11th. A U.S. release date has yet to be announced.
