Future Islands Announce New Album, Share Video for New Single ‘The Tower’

    Future Islands have announced a new album, People Who Aren’t There Anymore, which is slated for release on January 26 via 4AD. The follow-up to 2020’s As Long As You Are includes the previously shared tracks ‘Peach’, ‘King of Sweden’, and ‘Deep in the Night’, as well as a new single, ‘The Tower’. The track comes with a music video directed by Jonathan van Tulleken, who worked with singer Samuel T. Herring on the Apple TV+ series The Changeling. Check it out and find the album cover and tracklist below.

    “Anyone who’s seen Sam on stage shape shift with his whole body and voice from heart wrenchingly tender to fantastically ferocious knows that he is a truly, magnetic, performer,” van Tulleken said in a statement. “This was no small reason why he was cast for a role in The Changeling, where he plays a complex character who appears to be one thing whilst actually another. It was a role that would be no easy task for even the most seasoned actor, but Sam, applying all his stagecraft, charisma, smarts, and natural empathy, absolutely nailed it, producing a riveting performance. I loved working with someone who came to acting via this persona they had built in their music. To then get to collaborate on a music video with him was a delight, especially one which explores that duality of light and dark literally and metaphorically. Finding that same captivating, haunting, performance but this time with the track as script.”
