Less than a month after their Mercury Prize nomination for Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost - Part 1, Foals have announced the release of the album's second part.
Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost - Part 2 will be released on October 18th, and you can now hear the first track from the album, Black Bull.
Premiering as Annie Mac's Hottest Record in the World, Black Bull is an urgent, roaring first look at the record. Frontman Yannis Philippakis says of the record, ''Part two is a heavier listen, the guitars are more emphasised and there’s some big riffs on it. It’s a rock record and it definitely carries on the narrative from part one. Part one ended with a lot of fire and destructive imagery, part two is trying to respond to that: how you can continue in the wreckage and through the scorched earth? We’re just excited for people to hear it because it completes the journey of what we’ve made over the last year-and-a-half.''
Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 2 will be released on CD, digital and vinyl formats. Special editions include a coloured vinyl that will be available exclusively through indie stores, and a picture disc which is designed to be added to the Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost Collector’s Edition boxset. The album is now available to pre-order here, with Black Bull provided as an instant download.
