Future IslandsSam Herring and BADBADNOTGOOD have teamed up again on ‘I Don’t Know’

The pair previously teamed up on ‘Time Moves Slow’ from the band’s ‘IV’ album.

BADBADNOTGOOD and Sam Herring of Future Islands first teamed up on ‘Time Moves Slow’ from the Canadian band’s ‘IV’ album from last year.

The pair have now linked up again for new single ‘I Don’t Know’.

Future Islands released their new album ‘The Far Field’ back in April. BADBADNOTGOOD are currently still on tour promoting ‘IV’.

We spoke to Herring and his Future Islands bandmates around the release of ‘The Far Field’ for a feature in the magazine.

“The problem with success is that it can colour your perception of what you did, and we found success by being ourselves, so we shouldn’t change that,” Samuel told us.

“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’, but we’ve always stuck to a similar palette, made music honestly and that we love, and not really overthought things.”
