On Thursday night Future Islands had their fifth studio album The Far Field debut on TV, performing their new single ‘Ran’ on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. ‘Ran’ is the Baltimore-based trio’s first single from The Far Field, released on April 7th via 4AD / Remote Control. Watch Future Islands perform ‘Ran’ on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon below.
The Far Field refines and builds on the breakthroughs of their 2014 album Singles, bursting with undeniable hooks and disarmingly honest lyrics written by Samuel T. Herring (vocals, lyrics), William Cashion (bass, guitars) and Gerrit Welmers (keyboards, programming).
Across The Far Field’s twelve chest-pounding love songs and odes to the road, Future Islands brilliantly expresses the band’s central themes they’ve been exploring for the last decade: that there is power in emotional vulnerability, that one can find a way to laugh and cry in the same breath – and be stronger for it.
The Far Field will be available digitally, on 180gm white and standard black LP, CD, cassette formats and as a unique, first-of-its-kind miniature LP.
