The group head out on a UK tour next month.

Following 2020’s album ‘As Long As You Are’, and last year’s one-off single ‘Peach’, Future Islands are now sharing new track ‘King of Sweden’.

The track comes ahead of the group’s first UK tour since 2018, which kicks off next month.

Speaking about ‘As Long As You Are’ in our review, we said, “‘As Long As You Are’ is a steady-as-she-goes sort of affair - a solid effort from the four-piece that would fare better with a little more exploration.” Read our full review here.
