Indie-pop group Bastille has unveiled their new single “Shut Off The Lights” on Friday.
The single, which can be heard below, comes from the group’s forthcoming studio album Give Me The Future. Vocalist Dan Smith said this about the new cut:
“‘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. 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.”
Bastille have also unveiled dates for their forthcoming North American tour in support of the record. The trek kicks off on May 14 inside The Soundstage at Graceland in Memphis, and it’ll conclude inside Columbus’ KEMBA Live! Outdoor on June 17.
Pre-sale tickets for the trek will go on sale on Tuesday (January 18) at 10 a.m. local time. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Friday (January 21) at 10 a.m. local time. Tour dates can be seen below.
