Foals have released a music video for their single ‘Wash Off’. The ‘Wash Off PSA’ music video depicts someone following the standard medical procedure for hand-washing. The footage is played on loop with the track, while lyrics appear at the foot of the screen.
As well as entertaining their fans, it’s also a timely update on how to remain hygienic, as the coronavirus outbreak continues to spread. Check it out via Youtube.
As the coronavirus outbreak continues to cause chaos around the world, it has made an impact within the music industry. Recently, Madonna canceled shows in Paris, as well as the postponement of SXSW 2020. Plus, Miami’s Ultra Music Festival is reportedly set to be canceled due to the virus.
Other artists pulling out of shows include Green Day, BTS, Yungblud and Mariah Carey. But onto the lighter side of things. Recently, Foals released their final single, ‘Neptunes’ from their sixth album. However, the music video does clock in at a staggering ten minutes and twenty seconds.
‘Neptunes’ is the fifth single from ‘Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 2‘. Director David East combines “striking natural beauty with images that conjure the feeling of a world teetering on the precipice of an apocalypse,”. In October, Foals announced the supporting acts for their upcoming 2020 UK Tour, joined by Battles and Everything Everything. The full schedule of Foals tour dates are listed below:

‘Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 2′ has been described as “indisputable proof of their greatness”, in a five-star review by NME. “Not only a fittingly accomplished conclusion to their most adventurous and masterful project to date, ‘Part 2’ is also a thoroughbred belter of a record and utterly complete album in its own right.”
