Bastille has released their brand new single ‘Joy’, taken from their forthcoming third album Doom Days.
Bastille’s grippingly confident third album is a record of hope for turbulent times. Made by Dan Smith with bandmates Kyle Simmons, Will Farquarson and Chris ‘Woody’ Wood, and producer Mark Crew.
It sees the Grammy-nominated, Brit Award winning four-piece stretch out and open- up like never before.
Listen to ‘Joy’ by Bastille on the Official Fantasy Premier League playlist on Spotify.
Doom Days marks something of a shift in perception from its widely acclaimed #1 predecessor Wild World, which confronted the world and the actions of those in power.
Recorded throughout 2018 at the band’s South London studio, “One Eyed Jacks”, the new album captures the need to temporarily switch off and escape whilst taking the listener on a big night out in search of distraction from the surrounding apocalypse.
Doom Days finds Bastille at their most lyrically provocative, most accomplished, and most vital. It taps into globally felt worries whilst also working on a much more intimate level.
Setting the narrative of the album over the course of one night allows the band to hold a mirror up to the world using personal, relatable situations.
