Future Islands have announced their seventh studio album.

The follow-up to 2020's 'As Long As You Are' is titled 'People Who Aren't There Anymore' and will arrive on January 26 via 4AD. It was co-produced by Future Islands and Steve Wright, with Wright also handling mixing with Chris Coady.

The record will include the Baltimore art-pop group's previous singles Deep In The Night, King Of Sweden and Peach, as well as The Tower, a new haunting, synth-rock track that's propelled by frontman Samuel T. Herring's distinctive soft vocals. Head below to view the song's accompanying video, directed by Jonathan van Tulleken, who said:

"Anyone who’s seen Sam on stage shape shift with his whole body and voice from heart wrenchingly tender to fantastically ferocious knows that he is a truly, magnetic, performer. This was no small reason why he was cast for a role in The Changeling where he plays a complex character who appears to be one thing whilst actually another.

"It was a role that would be no easy task for even the most seasoned actor but Sam, applying all his stage craft, charisma, smarts and natural empathy, absolutely nailed it producing a riveting performance. I loved working with someone who came to acting via this persona they had built in their music. To then get to collaborate on a music video with the band was a delight, especially one which explores that duality of light and dark literally and metaphorically. Finding that same captivating, haunting, performance but this time with the track as script."

1. King of Sweden
2. The Tower
3. Deep In The Night
4. Say Goodbye
5. Give Me The Ghost Back
6. Corner Of My Eye
