Foals are coming back in 2022 with a new album, and while they haven’t revealed details including the title or release date, they have shared the album’s first offering. “Wake Me Up” arrives with a new Dave East–directed video. Watch it below.

“With ‘Wake Me Up’, I just wanted to write a song about transporting yourself to a better, idyllic situation,” Yannis Philippakis said in a statement. “I think we all had that feeling of the last eighteen months being like a weird fever dream that felt surreal but very affecting. I think we all wished we could have woken up somewhere else at various points.”

The new album will follow Foals’ two-part 2019 album Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost.
