With Singles, Future Islands' debut 4AD album, released 25th March, the Baltimore trio have teamed up with long-time collaborator filmmaker Jay Buim for the music video for 'Seasons (Waiting On You)'.
The video is an honest and intimate look at the American heartland filmed in the Great Plains, documenting a real life love story and capturing the landscapes that personify America. It follows a string of videos Buim has shot for the band that convey the same sense of honesty, beauty and earnestness that are the cornerstones of Future Islands’ music. "For us, sometimes, it's quite spellbinding how Jay can translate our sound into an image” explains vocalist Samuel T. Herring. "'Seasons (Waiting On You)', is a song about love, letting go, learning from your mistakes and always feeling that pull- yearning for a certain love, as time goes by and seasons change. It is simply a song about the human experience.”
In addition to the February club shows the trio are scheduled to play, Future Islands have also just announced further UK and European tour dates including a headline show at London’s Electric Ballroom on May 7th and several shows in Germany and Switzerland. The full list of shows is below.
'Seasons (Waiting On You)' 7'' will be available on 4th February, with exclusive non-album b-side 'One Day'.
