Last month we covered the news that Foals were set to take a break before releasing any new material; however earlier on today we can confirm that Foals have released a previously unheard song, whether it’s a new one or an older track doesn’t really matter, a new song is always worth getting excited about!
Listen to ‘Rain’ by Foals below:
‘Rain’ is set to be released on April 16th through Record Store Day event. The Record Store Day event is a day once a year to celebrate independent record shops. The event has been around since 2007 and has increasingly picked up more and more attention each year. Head of Universal Music’s Sales Marc Fayd’Herbe when speaking to NME regards the event as:
“I have worked with indies for 25 years and RSD has been the single best thing that has ever happened to the indies (stores). We should never forget that. We have supported RSD from the beginning. A few years ago stores were begging us to bring out stuff. Now we have brought out a nice raft of releases, some people are saying ‘Oh, they want to take over’.”
