Future Islands share new song ‘Calliope’

The track comes out via the Adult Swim series.

A year on from their latest album ‘The Far Field’, Future Islands have shared a new track.

‘Calliope’ has come out via the Adult Swim series, which has previously shared tracks from the likes of Run The Jewels, Thundercat, The Voidz and Brian Eno.

We spoke to Future Islands around the release of ‘The Far Field’, for a feature in the magazine. “A lot of artists will follow the trends of the time, thinking ‘well, this is the spotlight so we have to go towards it, and keep in the light by redefining ourselves at every turn’,” vocalist Sam Herring told us, ”but we’ve always stuck to a similar palette, made music honestly and that we love, and not really overthought things.”

The band are set to play a series of festival slots this year, including sets at Mad CoolNOS Alive and All Points East.
