Future Islands have shared ‘Moonlight’, the third new song from forthcoming album As Long As You Are out 9 October via 4AD. The song is paired with a video directed by Will Mayer (BADBADNOTGOOD) and starring Matthew Gray Gubler (Criminal Minds, 500 Days of Summer) and Callie Hernandez (La La Land, Alien).
Samuel T. Herring says of the song, “’Moonlight’ is a song about love in a depressive state. It’s about recognising the holes in ourselves and recognising the circular whole of others. ‘Moonlight’ is about acceptance because that’s what love allows us all. “I couldn’t see, I had a cloud in my arms, but if I asked you would you say, It’s only rain, nothing more.””
