Bastille released a new song, “Give Me The Future,” from their upcoming fourth studio album, on Thursday (July 16).
“So give me the future, it’s golden and bright/ Catch a fever dream in the flash of the lights/ Now nothing is certain, and the song isn’t done/ The new melodies rise up with the sun/ Give me the future”, Bastille frontman Dan Smith sings in the chorus in the ’80s-inspired track.
“‘Give Me The Future’ is a song about plugging into endless possibilities,” Smith said. “Literally, feels like everything is out there for the taking, all tastes catered for.”
“The spaceship sound at the start? It’s us crash landing in the future. The reality we live in at the moment was the science fiction of not that long ago,” he continued. “Take a film like Minority Report. The technology in that seemed so far off, a fantasy. But it’s here, we’re way beyond it already. Had someone told you that 20 years ago, when the film came out… you’d have laughed. Or been terrified.”
