It’s the latest taste of their new album ‘Life Is Yours’.

With their new album ‘Life Is Yours’ set for release on 17th June, Foals are sharing their latest single ‘2001’.

“‘2001’ feels like a postcard from the past,” Yannis Philippakis says. “We moved to Brighton around that time, we were a young band, and there was the feeling of the first taste of independence. The moment you get those freedoms, you’re surrounded by temptation. The references to beachside candy and Brighton rock are symbols for drugs and hedonism. This was written in the depths of the pandemic winter, and there’s an escapist desire to break out from the feeling of being cooped up, both in terms of the pandemic and adolescence.”
