Baltimore trio Future Islands have released a new single from their upcoming album The Far Field out Friday 7 April. The chest-pounding ‘Cave’ speaks directly to the bruised but brave romantic in each of us. For a unique spin on a lyric video, the band enlisted American sign language interpreter Jonathan Lamberton to sign ‘Cave’s lyrics. Watch it below!
The Far Field refines and builds on the breakthroughs of their 2014 album Singles, written by Samuel T. Herring (vocals, lyrics), William Cashion (bass, guitars) and Gerrit Welmers (keyboards, programming).
Samuel, William and Gerrit recorded their new material in Los Angeles with Grammy Award-winning producer John Congleton at the Sunset Sound. With string and horn arrangements by Patrick McMinn, The Far Field is the first Future Islands record to feature live drums by Michael Lowry. Blondie’s Debbie Harry also makes a guest appearance, in a duet with Herring on penultimate track ‘Shadows’.
