Future Islands have shared a new song titled ‘Moonlight’. It’s taken from the band’s upcoming album As Long As You Are and arrives with an accompanying visual directed by Will Mayer and starring Matthew Gray Gubler and Callie Hernandez. Check it out below.
“It’s about recognising the holes in ourselves and recognising the circular whole of others,” frontman Samuel T. Herring said of the track in a statement. “‘Moonlight’ is about acceptance because that’s what love allows us all.”
As Long As You Are comes out October 9 via 4AD. ‘Moonlight’ marks the third single from the album, following the previously released ‘Thrill’ and ‘For Sure’. Future Islands are set to play a special ticketed livestream concert on the album’s release date, featuring “a bespoke one-off light show created by light artist Pierre Claude.” Tickets are on sale now.
