Ahead of the release of their new album ‘Give Me The Future’ on 4th February, Bastille have shared new single ‘Shut Off The Lights’.
“Shut off the lights is about being pulled out of your future-fearing anxieties by the person you’re lying next to. It’s about intimacy and physical connection, rejecting our worries about life and the future for a minute, and unplugging from it all to really be present,” Dan explains. “It’s a fun, real, human moment in the middle of this big album. But also, it’s a song that nods back to Paul Simon’s Graceland and a load of music we love. It made us want to dance around the studio and is ridiculously fun to play live”
