Bastille Announce Fourth Album 'Give Me The Future', Share New Single No Bad Days

Wednesday, 20 October 2021 Written by Jon Stickler

Bastille have announced their fourth studio album.

'Give Me The Future' will arrive on February 4 and feature the newly unveiled single No Bad Days, along with the previously shared songs Thelma + LouiseDistorted Light Beam, and the title track.

The full-length follow-up to 2019's 'Doom Days' was conceptualized before the coronavirus pandemic hit, and explores new technology and the dark side of the online world. It's described by the band as, "a tribute to humanity in a tech age and reflects on the strangeness of living through times that can feel like science fiction." Dan Smith commented further:

"Working on these songs in such an apocalyptic period, with everyone stuck at home, glued to screens, fed into the feeling that what is real and what is not has become pretty difficult to discern sometimes. We’re in the age of deep fake, fake news and lying world leaders. But online, you can be anyone. What that does to our sense of self and to our relationships is huge, and it’s fascinating."

Displaying the group's knack for great singalong hooks and emotionally-driven electronic pop, the new number arrives with a futuristic video that continues the record's cinematic sci-fi theme, co-directed by Smith. He added: "It’s really satisfying to have finally directed, and I’m really proud of the little film we made. I grew up with film as my main obsession, so this was a bit of a dream. I learned a shitload, and it was good to be challenged in a new way."
