Bastille Release New Single Remind Me

Friday, 10 June 2022 Written by Jon Stickler

Bastille have shared a new single, Remind Me.

The airy beat-led pop song follows their new album, 'Give Me The Future', which dropped in February, and arrives ahead of the quartet's summer festival appearances at Kendal CallingBoardmasters and Reading and Leeds.

The track was created while the band were in Los Angeles working with Rami Yacoub from Max Martin's production team MxM. Frontman Dan Smith commented:

"I started working on Remind Me a few years ago in Los Angeles with some writer friends at the very beginning of the 'Give Me The Future' album process. We weren’t really sure what it would be for but always loved how different it felt. Finishing it off in London with Mark Crew and the rest of the guys we’d wanted to make something sharp and minimal. The lyrics are about how our minds can taunt us with memories that play uncontrollably like scenes on a loop, so we set the track over this hypnotic, rolling guitar riff. We invited a bunch of singers to lend their voices to the track.

"We’d been diving into a bunch of music from the 80's that had sounded futuristic at the time, so it fits with the ideas of the past’s versions of the future that we explore across the album. This song was like a jumping off point for us a couple of years ago and helped shape the sonic tone of the whole GMTF album.

"Plus, I’m a massive Michel Gondry and Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind fan, and love how that film explores memory and relationships, so it was fun to nod to it."

Bastille are currently on the road in the United States and play the Masonic Temple Theatre in Detroit tonight (June 10).
