Foals come through with a new album titled “Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost” Part 2. This is the sixth studio album by Foals that is expected to be released in Autumn 2019.
Both parts was recorded as one massive of music and lyrics. Speaking to DIY Magazine in March 2019, Philippakis said:
They were written as one coin, but they’ve become two separate coins. There are still riffs on Album One but there’s a slightly different palette to it; album two’s got some proper chunky riffs on it. Lyrically, I think album two has more perseverance to it. There are songs about working through it and the power of perseverance and energy and passion, and not being defeated by… not being defeated, full stop, really. There’s a drive to album two. A lot of the lyrical themes are similar, but the opening couple of tracks of Album Two have this ‘when you’re going through hell, keep going’ type of mentality. So maybe in some ways you could look at it as a response to Album One. It’s a bit like a cliffhanger.
Asked about the experience of touring a new album while simultaneously finishing a separate LP in the studio, the frontman replied: “It’s been a bit of a headfuck, it’s been a challenge. With things like mixing and sequencing albums, it’s really intense and we’re fully in the zone. You’ve got a real sense of momentum to finish the project.”
He continued: “But then having to do that while having to think about performing and all of that… it’s been a bit of a strain and a challenge. But that’s what we wanted from the album this time around. I think it’s gonna be a great feeling putting out another 10 songs in a few months.”
“Obviously on the album we don’t go for the same energy, so it meant expecting something different from the show. But it was great and it felt really liberating to play the more understated material that we wouldn’t normally play in a regular Foals set.”
